Published by

State officials suddenly closed a detention center for troubled children and teens on Thursday, arrived on campus after a high school graduation ceremony, and moved the children to other foster care centers.

The Ridgeview Youth Service Center, where children attend charter schools on campus and receive intensive treatment for behavioral health, has been ordered by the State Human Services Department to close by July 1.

The center was allowed to accommodate up to 500 people, but was caring for less than 50 boys.
