Juvenile community correctional centers and facilities; establishment; placement of juveniles. Changes the term "juvenile correctional centers and facilities" to "juvenile community correctional centers and facilities." The bill further provides that any juvenile community correctional center established after July 1, 2020, shall (i) be located within a locality in which at least five percent of all juvenile commitments occur statewide, using an average of the rate of commitments of the three most recent consecutive years, and (ii) be designed to confine 30 juveniles or fewer. The bill also states that the Department of Juvenile Justice shall place children at the juvenile community correctional center located closest to their primary residence and within one hour of such residence via motor vehicle and within one and one-half hours of such residence via public transportation. If such placement is not available, the Department shall use an alternative placement that is closest to the juvenile's primary residence, such as a local juvenile detention center. Under current law, the Department may place such children at such facilities as are available. Read the Bill »
