RI County juvenile delinquents sent to Knox County

News

Rock Island County sends kids who get in trouble with the law away for treatment because there is no juvenile detention center in the county.

They go to Knox County instead.

The Mary Davis Home in Galesburg takes kids accused of crimes like stealing cars, theft, battery and mob action.

James Sears has a look at where they go, and why a detention center won’t be built in Rock Island County in the video above.
