Burnett-Bayland Reception Center, Houston, Texas

Juvenile-In-Justice by Richard Ross

Burnett-Bayland Reception Center, Houston, Texas

The Center was originally built with a capacity of 144 beds, but was downsized to a 90-bed capacity. The population is 85 percent boys and 15 percent girls, and is heavily populated by African American juveniles. The Center has a drug program, a behavioral intervention program, a sex offender program, and a gang supervision program. The least recidivism is with sex offenders. 2/3 of the funding comes from the county and 1/3 from state/federal funds.
