Temporary detention order; custody. Removes the requirement that a person subject to a temporary detention order remain in the custody of the community services board for the duration of the order. This requirement was in conflict with other Code sections that require that such person remain in the custody of law enforcement until custody is transferred to a facility ( 37.2-809 (E)) or to an alternative transportation provider ( 37.2-810 (B)).
