Admissions Procedures

Traffic charges for youth 16 years or older are considered "adult" charges.  Adult Pretrial Services determines placement according to their criteria.

All personal belongings (including shoes), except one layer of clothing, are collected from each youth.


When detained by Court:

The Judge's Court Order may place the youth on Community Based Services, or remand to Secure Detention with a pss court date.
