Disturbance at Juvenile Correctional Complex

A disturbance by 10 teens Sunday evening at the Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex resulted in property damage in three living units.

According to the Kansas Department of Corrections, juvenile males ranging in age from 17-19 were involved in the incident. An investigation, being led by the Kansas Department of Correction’s Enforcement’s Apprehension and Investigation Unit has yet to identify the amount of property damage or the reason for the incident.

“This isn’t normal for our facility, the fact that no injuries occurred is a credit to the professionalism and response of our staff,” said Randy Bowman, Deputy Secretary of Juvenile Services.

The Kansas Juvenile Correctional Complex is located in Topeka. It is the state’s only juvenile correctional facility, and has a population of 167.
