CO Company to Take Over Casper, Cheyenne Juvenile Facilities

Cheyenne, WY – A Colorado company has received two provisional state licenses to operate juvenile detention centers in Casper and Cheyenne.

Cornerstone Programs is taking over operations at the Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Casper and at the Jeffrey C. Wardle Academy in Cheyenne. Both facilities had been run by a Cheyenne
company, Frontier Correctional Systems.

The Wyoming Department of Family Services has scrutinized both facilities over the past year.

Department officials recently looked into the Casper facility following alleged sexual assaults involving two boys. DFS
investigated the Wardle Academy last summer, saying that youths were having sex and had access to drugs.
