Martin named superintendent of James River Juvenile Detention Center

Michael D. Martin recently was named superintendent of the James River Juvenile Detention Center by Henrico County Manager Virgil Hazelett. Martin began his new position June 2.

He previously served as an assistant superintendent of the 60-bed center. He succeeds Patricia F. Carrington, who retired after more than 12 years as superintendent.

The James River Juvenile Detention Center, located in Powhatan County, is jointly owned and operated on behalf of the counties of Henrico, Goochland and Powhatan. Henrico handles employee recruitment with confirmation by the James River Juvenile Detention Commission. The center opened in 2001 and is managed separately from the 20-bed Henrico Juvenile Detention Home on Dixon Powers Drive in Henrico.

As superintendent of the James River Juvenile Detention Center, Martin will oversee a full-time staff of 66 and a budget of $5.5 million for fiscal year 2012-13. The secure facility houses youths who have been sentenced or await court action on criminal offenses. It provides educational, counseling and other services to help the youths lead successful lives upon their release.

Martin has served as an assistant superintendent since 2001. Previously, he worked as a security control specialist supervisor for the Richmond Juvenile Detention Center and retired as a military police officer after 26 years with the Army Reserve. He holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Virginia Commonwealth University.
