Besides the three juvenile halls, the Los Angeles County Probation Department oversees 18 youth camps with bed
capacity for 2,125 minors. Approximately 2,200 minors are housed at these facilities. The average length of time spent
in a camp is 23.8 weeks. The average age at a camp is 15.7 years. Ethnic percentages at the camps is approximately
56% Hispanic, 29% African-American and the remaining 15% of various other ethnicities. Before placement in the
appropriate camp, minors are housed at one of three Juvenile Halls (see paragraph below). In addition, the Dorothy
Kirby Center
provides treatment for emotionally disturbed youths.

Approximately 2,000 to 2,200 Los Angeles County juvenile defendants are held in custody at one of three Juvenile Halls
(Central, Los Padrinos and San Fernando Valley/Barry J. Nidorf) awaiting court action or transfer to another facility. Deputy
Probation Officers are responsible for the custody and transport of minor defendants. The Sheriff's Department receives
custody of those minors determined to be "unfit" for Juvenile Court and ordered housed at County Jail by the court. Not all
"unfit" minors, however, are housed at County Jail.

Central Juvenile Hall (Eastlake) was the first permanent county juvenile detention facility in Los Angeles County.
It opened in 1912. The second juvenile hall did not open until 45 years later when Los Padrinos opened in 1957.
