Our Mission

Performance Improvement Summary

Louisville Metro Youth Detention Services (LMYDS) has focused its continuous improvement efforts towards its overtime budget, hiring cycle, PO process, and cross-functional teams. In an effort to continuously improve, LMYDS set an aggressive goal to reduce overtime by 20% of the current fiscal year budget and as of the end of April 2016, LMYDS has reduced the budget by 15.68% with hopes to do even more in the next fiscal year. This achievement is, in part, due to collaborative efforts among all staff and the creation and implementation of new scheduling reports.

Other improvement projects such as the hiring cycle project, geared towards reducing the amount of time to onboard new staff, yielded a newly revised youth program worker job description. Another LMYDS continuous improvement project is the PO project, created with a goal of getting invoices paid in a timely manner to maintain high levels of external customer satisfaction with LMYDS vendors. Lastly, the building of cross-functional teams will help expand LMYDS’s volunteer list and provide a variety of programs to our youth. All-in-all, LMYDS is a department on the move and works daily to improve their business functions through the use of best practice continuous improvement tools.
