MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - After years of problems, the Shelby County Juvenile Justice Center is receiving praise by a national organization for reducing the use of solitary confinement.

A newly released report calls their work impressive for limiting the use of solitary confinement and putting them in a strong position to continue reforms at the embattled detention facility.

“It is so impactful. It's amazing to know that what was talked about some years back, in 2015, we're actually implementing,” said Assistant Chief Deidra Bridgeforth, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

Over a three-month span in 2015, the facility averaged over 21 hours of solitary confinement per month.

Over a three-month span in 2018, the Sheriff's office had lowered that number to an average of five hours per month.
