Welcome to Hillbrook
Founded in 1974, Hillbrook Juvenile Detention Center is a division of the Onondaga County Department of Probation. It is a secure facility located on Onondaga Hill in Syracuse, NY. Hillbrook provides mandated secure services for youth ages 10 to 16.
Youth who have pending juvenile delinquency cases in Family Court may be remanded to Hillbrook until the conclusion of their cases or until an appropriate alternative to detention can be identified. Youth prosecuted in criminal court and charged as Juvenile Offenders, may also be housed at Hillbrook until their sentencing.
Hillbrook is certified by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services and can accommodate 32 youth. Though Hillbrook primarily serves Onondaga County, out-of-county residents can be admitted when there are vacancies.
While at Hillbrook, residents participate in an educational program that operates year round. In addition, medical screening and services, psychiatric assessment, case management, worship services and pro-social programming are offered.
