More information

The Superior Court of San Joaquin County provides countywide juvenile court services from the Juvenile Justice Center in French Camp, approximately six miles south of Stockton. The current two-courtroom facility is part of a campus occupied by various county functions, including the juvenile detention center, probation, district attorney, and public defender. The current facility has several deficiencies related to security, efficiency, and accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

This project involves renovating the existing facility and building a 4,000-square-foot addition to:

  • Increase the capacity for juvenile court proceedings by adding a third courtroom, thereby providing space for one new judgeship;
  • Improve the lobby by correctly placing security screening in a functional and appropriately sized space; and
  • Modify public restrooms and public counters for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Judicial Council expects to complete interior improvements in off hours as needed to minimize disruption to court operations.

California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Compliance

The Judicial Council complied with CEQA by filing a categorical exemption for this project on March 8, 2011.
