Detention Services provides temporary care in a physically-restricting, 24-hour facility for delinquent youth who pose a danger to others an who are ineligible for placements offering a lesser degree of restrictiveness.  This temporary care protect three principle rights:

  • The Community's right to immediate protection from the youth

  • The youth's right to be detained in an environment conductive to normal growth and development; and

  • The court's right to immediate access to the youth for court hearings

Detention offers mandated levels of programming, including group work, education, recreation, counseling and medical services.
