The Logansport Juvenile Correctional Facility Intake Unit (formerly the Logansport Juvenile Intake/Diagnostic Facility) was originally designed to serve as a detention center for Cass County.  The Logansport Juvenile Facility was leased by the State of Indiana, Indiana Department of Correction and opened as a long term, maximum security juvenile facility in 1992.  In 1995 the Department of Correction identified the need to convert the Logansport Juvenile Facility from a long term maximum security facility to the intake facility for all male juveniles committed to the Indiana Department of Correction, Juvenile Services Division.  In July 1995, the Logansport Juvenile Intake/Diagnostic Facility officially began operating under its current mission.  The facility was officially purchased by the State of Indiana from Cass County in August 1996.  In January 2006, the facility added the Community Supervision Violators to its mission. 

Today, the Intake Unit is an 84 bed maximum security facility serving as the intake facility for all male juveniles between the ages of 12 and 18 who have been committed to the Indiana Department of Correction or have been ordered by the court for a pre-dispositional diagnostic evaluation.
