Eligibility for detention

Youth are held in detention for a variety of reasons, most of which center around and three issues:

  • community safety
  • assuring the youth will appear for a court hearing
  • holding the youth accountable

In addition to the above issues, there are further legal standards which must be met before a youth can be placed in detention. No youth under 12 years of age may be held in detention prior to a judicial review. A youth is eligible for placement in detention if:

  • a warrant for the custody of that youth has been issued
  • the youth is a fugitive or runaway from another state
