New Orleans Juvenile Justice Center’s New Facility Gets Revamped Access Control, Video Surveillance

Automated Control Systems integrated security systems from Schneider Electric and Pelco.

NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Juvenile Justice Center was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Now, 10 years and $32 million later, the new facility was completed.

Automated Control Systems has finished up its $2.4 million building automation system that is equipped with access control systems from Schneider Electric and Endura video security from Pelco.

The center is comprised of six buildings, including a 60,000 square foot Youth Study facility and 47,000 square foot Juvenile Court Building. There are a total of 230 security cameras and 177 door readers across all buildings, and a central command center is located in the Youth Study Center to monitor all security measures.

The center’s access control system reads onsite badging equipment so specific individuals can have restricted access to specific buildings and areas within the complex. This ensures proper security and safety of the detained youth, staff, visitors, police and court personnel.
