Nevada: Center for violent juveniles may reopen

State authorities are negotiating with two private contractors to reopen Summit View detention center for violent juvenile offenders.

In June 2001, an uprising caused more than $12,000 in damage. Later, two former officers were sentenced to probation for having sexual relations with residents.

Securicor New Century of Richmond, Va., and Rite of Passage of Minden, Nev., are competing for the right to operate the 96-bed center in North Las Vegas. Floridabased Youth Services International resigned the $4.3 million annual contract last January.
