Use the juvenile justice resource made available in the Modules section.  Detention is intended to be short time and only when needed while the juvenile is pending court. Juveniles do not have the right to bail, so once detained pending court, only a judge can release the juvenile. By statute, in order to be detained, the juvenile must meet at least one of the set criteria for detention.  What are those 5 reasons for detention?  Do not just list the 5 reasons, explain your understanding of each and give me your thoughts on these.  Do you feel each of these justify detention?  Are any overly vague?
