HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A recent grand jury report points out that the Harrison County Youth Detention Center is clean and well maintained. The report also made recommendations to improve services for young offenders who are housed there.

One major proposal caught Youth Court Judge Margaret Alfonso's eye, because it's something she has been fighting for since 2010.

The report recommends relocating the facility to Youth Court in Gulfport. Alfonso believes moving the detention center to the youth court campus would improve services for children.

Trang Pham Bui will tell you more about the report in her story coming up tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
