Shuman Juvenile Detention Center loses Pa. certification

State officials have refused to re-certify Shuman Juvenile Detention Center, citing violations of minimum staffing and staff training requirements, inadequate fire drills, poor health record documentation, and disrepair at the Lincoln-Lemington facility, including the presence of black mold.

Instead, Department of Public Welfare officials have issued a provisional certificate of compliance for Shuman through Jan. 1 while officials there address needed corrections.

More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
