Ocean County Juvenile Det. Center Reviews
you only get to visit for 30 minutes. depending what unit your are. your only allowed to visit on Saturdays and Sundays. There is no bail allowed. Phone calls are very strict, they will let you know when u can make a phone call if u want to i think its up to your behavior. when you have to go to court you have to be chained up..., your wrists and ankles. They take all your jewelry , phone, and clothes.. you have to put on a jump suit . Its up to them when they think your ready to leave, or weather your found guilty or not guilty at court.Yes you do have to learn like going to classes.Also only your parent or guardian are really the only ones allowed to see him if you have to go in for something or a visit . unless its court everyone can go.Its depressing there.
