The Lower Easter Shore Children's Center (LESCC) is a twenty-four bed maximum security detention facility owned and operated by the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services (DJS). The facility opened in November of 2003 and is designed to house male and female youth who have been court committed or who are awaiting adjudication. The center is divided into three housing “pods” enabling youngsters to be separated by gender. “Pod A” was designed to individually house a maximum of 6 girls; “Pod B” can accommodate 6 boys in separate rooms; and “Pod C” is able to hold up to 12 boys – each with their own quarters. Most youth at the facility are from the Eastern Shore.
