Volusia Regional Juvenile Detention Center, Daytona Beach, Florida
July 15, 2018
Approximately 20 detainees (all teenagers) lock officers into a common room where televisions are pulled off walls, broken with trash cans, and officers are injured by weapons made by cafeteria tray handles. The detainees refuse to return to their cells. Keys are taken from a staff member and used to attempt to open doors to escape. In their report, deputies said the detention center “completely lost control of the facility”. A riot broke out in the same area of the facility in July 2011.
