  1. Question: Which detention facility does your agency use?
    Please explain any problems, which exist regarding the transfer of juveniles or availability.

    Reference: No Reference

    There are 17 juvenile detention facilities within the State of Illinois. Many juveniles are taken into custody and upon approval and recommendation by the county probation departments, are referred to secure detention within one of these seventeen recognized juvenile detention facilities.

    At times it becomes necessary for the agencies who utilize these detention facilities, to seek outside their boundaries for other facilities that would have available space. Any problems, which exist regarding the transfer of juveniles and availability should be noted and explained in details either at the end of the question or within the comment section.
