In 2016 San Luis Obispo County completed a $20 million expansion of its Juvenile Hall, increasing it from 18,000 to 42,000 square feet and from 45 to 65 beds. The project was many years in the making. The expansion project allowed the facility to expand the amount and quality of its services, such as implementing the new custody commitment camp program named, The Coastal Valley Academy (CVA), which is for 14-17 year old male and female youth who are moderate to high risk and in need of residential treatment.

In local government this week, Monterey County officials are slated to make decisions related to the new county jail expansion project. The $89 million dollar project is almost ready to go out to bid, but first the board of supervisors has to sign off on a staffing and operations plan for the facility for next 30 years. 

Construction is set to get underway next week on a $20 million expansion of San Luis Obispo County's Juvenile Hall.

The facility is located on Highway 1, not far from the Cuesta College campus and Camp San Luis Obispo.

The project will add 20 new sleeping rooms, three classrooms, a mental health treatment office, two interview/counseling rooms, a multipurpose gymnasium, staff bathrooms, male and female staff locker rooms, a training/conference room, and staff offices to the existing structure.

Santa Maria Police arrested a 13-year-old boy last night after a high speed chase that ended in a Michael's craft store.

Officers say the boy ran a red light and then drove the vehicle into the store, stopping about 30 feet into the building.

Major structural and merchandise damage was reported within the store at 1934 S. Broadway in Santa Maria.

Police believe the car was stolen prior to the chase.

They booked the boy in juvenile hall for evading a peace office and reckless driving, among other offenses.
