INTAKE/RECEIVING/DETENTION PROCESSING


Intake/Receiving

This unit receives physically referred juveniles from law enforcement organizations and makes decisions about detaining the youth or releasing to the parent pending further court actions.  Of the 2868 youth physically referred in 2010, 1535 or 53.5 percent were detained.  Intake officers use a validated Risk Assessment Instrument (RAI) to make objective uniform decisions concerning release.  Within 24 hours of being detained, juveniles appear at a Detention Hearing and a judge determines if they will be released or remain detained.
