Business Brisk At La Salle County Detention Home

Posted by wlpo on February 15, 2013

2012 was a busy year for the La Salle County Detention Home.

The home spent most of the year at capacity with 182 admissions, a 10 percent jump from the year before.  Over 70 percent of the kids spending time in the detention home last year were boys.  Whites made up 75 percent of the detention home population in 2012.

Breaking it down by city, Streator had 51 kids spend time in the detention home last year, by far the most.  Ottawa was next highest with 36 followed by Marseilles with 25.  La Salle and Peru combined had 20 kids sent to the detention home.
