A large group of dignitaries and interested residents attended a ribbon cutting at the Southwest Juvenile Courthouse, the 15th and newest courthouse in Riverside County.

Riverside County 3rd District Supervisor Chuck Washington, the Riverside County Superior Court and the Economic Development Agency announced the ribbon cutting of the new courthouse, which is the first courthouse built in the county in more than 15 years. The event was held Aug. 2.

Speakers at the ribbon cutting were Washington and Honorable Mark A. Cope, past presiding judge of the Riverside
County Superior Court.

The new Southwest Juvenile courthouse is 14,381 square feet and fills a “critical need” for the county of Riverside and the Superior Court of California in providing juvenile and delinquency courtrooms, a secured direct access corridor from Southwest Juvenile Hall, judge’s chambers and administrative offices.

According to a press release issued by the county, the new secured corridor is a “tremendous asset” both in safety and efficiencies for the Probation Department, allowing direct transporting of youth from facility to facility without being exposed to the outside.

The design was completed by Tate Snyder Kimsey out of Los Angeles. The project delivery method was C.M. Multi-Prime with Vanir Construction Management and 13 Prime Contractors.

The Southwest Juvenile Courthouse is located at 30755-G Auld Road in Murrieta.
