25 Section 2. Subsection (1) of section 985.25, Florida
26 Statutes, is amended to read:
27 985.25 Detention intake.—
28 (1) The department shall receive custody of a child who has
29 been taken into custody from the law enforcement agency or court
30 and shall review the facts in the law enforcement report or
31 probable cause affidavit and make such further inquiry as may be
32 necessary to determine whether detention care is appropriate.
33 (a) During the period of time from the taking of the child
34 into custody to the date of the detention hearing, the initial
35 decision as to the child’s placement into
secure or nonsecure
36 detention care shall be made by the department under ss. 985.24
37 and 985.245(1).
38 (b) The department shall base the decision whether to place
39 the child into secure or nonsecure detention care on an
40 assessment of risk in accordance with the risk assessment
41 instrument and procedures developed by the department under s.
42 985.245, except that . However, a child shall be placed in secure
43 detention care until the child’s detention hearing if the child

45 with possessing or discharging a firearm on school property in
46 violation of s. 790.115, or shall be placed in secure detention
47 care. A child who has been taken into custody on three or more
48 separate occasions within a 60-day period shall be placed in
49 secure detention care until the child’s detention hearing.
50 (c) If the final score on the child’s risk assessment
51 instrument indicates detention care is appropriate, but the
52 department otherwise determines the child should be released,
53 the department shall contact the state attorney, who may
54 authorize release.
55 (d) If the final score on the risk assessment instrument
56 indicates detention is not appropriate, the child may be
57 released by the department in accordance with ss. 985.115 and
60 Under no circumstances shall the department or the state
61 attorney or law enforcement officer authorize the detention of
62 any child in a jail or other facility intended or used for the
63 detention of adults, without an order of the court.
64 Section 3. Subsections (1) and (3) of section 985.255,
65 Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
66 985.255 Detention criteria; detention hearing.—
67 (1) Subject to s. 985.25(1), a child taken into custody and
68 placed into secure or nonsecure detention care shall be given a
69 hearing within 24 hours after being taken into custody. At the
70 hearing, the court may order continued detention if:
71 (a) The child is alleged to be an escapee from a
72 residential commitment program; or an absconder from a
73 nonresidential commitment program, a probation program, or
74 conditional release supervision; or is alleged to have escaped
75 while being lawfully transported to or from a residential
76 commitment program.
77 (b) The child is wanted in another jurisdiction for an
78 offense which, if committed by an adult, would be a felony.
79 (c) The child is charged with a delinquent act or violation
80 of law and requests in writing through legal counsel to be
81 detained for protection from an imminent physical threat to his
82 or her personal safety.
83 (d) The child is charged with committing an offense of
84 domestic violence as defined in s. 741.28 and is detained as
85 provided in subsection (2).
86 (e) The child is charged with possession of or discharging
87 a firearm on school property in violation of s. 790.115 or the
88 illegal possession of a firearm.
89 (f) The child is charged with a capital felony, a life
90 felony, a felony of the first degree, a felony of the second
91 degree that does not involve a violation of chapter 893, or a
92 felony of the third degree that is also a crime of violence,
93 including any such offense involving the use or possession of a
95 (g) The child is charged with any second degree or third
96 degree felony involving a violation of chapter 893 or any third
97 degree felony that is not also a crime of violence, and the
99 1. Has a record of failure to appear at court hearings
100 after being properly notified in accordance with the Rules of
101 Juvenile Procedure;
102 2. Has a record of law violations prior to court hearings;
103 3. Has already been detained or has been released and is
104 awaiting final disposition of the case;
105 4. Has a record of violent conduct resulting in physical
106 injury to others; or
107 5. Is found to have been in possession of a firearm.
108 (h) The child is alleged to have violated the conditions of
109 the child’s probation or conditional release supervision.
110 However, a child detained under this paragraph may be held only
111 in a consequence unit as provided in s. 985.439. If a
112 consequence unit is not available, the child shall be placed on
113 nonsecure detention with electronic monitoring.
114 (i) The child is detained on a judicial order for failure
115 to appear and has previously willfully failed to appear, after
116 proper notice:
117 1. For an adjudicatory hearing on the same case regardless
118 of the results of the risk assessment instrument; or
119 2. At two or more court hearings of any nature on the same
120 case regardless of the results of the risk assessment
123 A child may be held in secure detention for up to 72 hours in
124 advance of the next scheduled court hearing pursuant to this
125 paragraph. The child’s failure to keep the clerk of court and
126 defense counsel informed of a current and valid mailing address
127 where the child will receive notice to appear at court
128 proceedings does not provide an adequate ground for excusal of
129 the child’s nonappearance at the hearings.
130 (j) The child is a prolific juvenile offender. A child is a
131 prolific juvenile offender if the child:
132 1. Is charged with a delinquent act that would be a felony
133 if committed by an adult;
134 2. Has been adjudicated or had adjudication withheld for a
135 felony offense, or a delinquent act that would be a felony if
136 committed by an adult, before the charge under subparagraph 1.;
138 3. In addition to meeting the requirements of subparagraphs
139 1. and 2., has five or more of any of the following, at least
140 three of which must have been for felony offenses or delinquent
141 acts that would have been felonies if committed by an adult:
142 a. An arrest event for which a disposition, as defined in
143 s. 985.26, has not been entered;
144 b. An adjudication; or
145 c. An adjudication withheld.
147 As used in this subparagraph, the term “arrest event” means an
148 arrest or referral for one or more criminal offenses or
149 delinquent acts arising out of the same episode, act, or
151 (3)(a) The purpose of the detention hearing required under
152 subsection (1) is to determine the existence of probable cause
153 that the child has committed the delinquent act or violation of
154 law that he or she is charged with and the need for continued
155 detention. Unless a child is detained under paragraph (1)(d) or
156 paragraph (1)(e), the court shall use the results of the risk
157 assessment performed by the department and, based on the
158 criteria in subsection (1), shall determine the need for
159 continued detention. If a child is a prolific juvenile offender
160 who is detained under s. 985.26(2)(c), the court shall use the
161 results of the risk assessment performed by the department and
162 the criteria in subsection (1) or subsection (2) only to
163 determine whether the prolific juvenile offender should be held
164 in secure detention.
165 (b) If the court orders a placement more restrictive than
166 indicated by the results of the risk assessment instrument, the
167 court shall state, in writing, clear and convincing reasons for
168 such placement.
169 (c) Except as provided in s. 790.22(8) or in s. 985.27,
170 when a child is placed into secure or nonsecure detention care,
171 or into a respite home or other placement pursuant to a court
172 order following a hearing, the court order must include specific
173 instructions that direct the release of the child from such
174 placement no later than 5 p.m. on the last day of the detention
175 period specified in s. 985.26 or s. 985.27, whichever is
176 applicable, unless the requirements of such applicable provision
177 have been met or an order of continuance has been granted under
178 s. 985.26(4). If the court order does not include a release
179 date, the release date shall be requested from the court on the
180 same date that the child is placed in detention care. If a
181 subsequent hearing is needed to provide additional information
182 to the court for safety planning, the initial order placing the
183 child in detention care shall reflect the next detention review
184 hearing, which shall be held within 3 calendar days after the
185 child’s initial detention placement.
186 Section 4. Subsections (1) through (4) of section 985.26,
187 Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
188 985.26 Length of detention.—
189 (1) A child may not be placed into or held in secure or
190 nonsecure detention care for longer than 24 hours unless the
191 court orders such detention care, and the order includes
192 specific instructions that direct the release of the child from
193 such detention care, in accordance with s. 985.255. The order
194 shall be a final order, reviewable by appeal under s. 985.534
195 and the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure. Appeals of such
196 orders shall take precedence over other appeals and other
197 pending matters.
198 (2)(a) Except as provided in paragraph (b) or paragraph
199 (c), a child may not be held in secure or nonsecure detention
200 care under a special detention order for more than 21 days
201 unless an adjudicatory hearing for the case has been commenced
202 in good faith by the court.
203 (b) However, Upon good cause being shown that the nature of
204 the charge requires additional time for the prosecution or
205 defense of the case, the court may extend the length of
206 detention for an additional 9 days if the child is charged with
207 an offense that would be, if committed by an adult, a capital
208 felony, a life felony, a felony of the first degree, or a felony
209 of the second degree involving violence against any individual.
210 (c) A prolific juvenile offender under s. 985.255(1)(j)
211 shall be placed on nonsecure detention care with electronic
212 monitoring or in secure detention care under a special detention
213 order until disposition. If secure detention care is ordered by
214 the court, it must be authorized under this part and may not
216 1. Twenty-one days unless an adjudicatory hearing for the
217 case has been commenced in good faith by the court or the period
218 is extended by the court pursuant to paragraph (b); or
219 2. Fifteen days after the entry of an order of
222 As used in this paragraph, the term “disposition” means a
223 declination to file under s. 985.15(1)(h), the entry of nolle
224 prosequi for the charges, the filing of an indictment under s.
225 985.56 or an information under s. 985.557, a dismissal of the
226 case, or an order of final disposition by the court.
227 (3) Except as provided in subsection (2), a child may not
228 be held in secure or nonsecure detention care for more than 15
229 days following the entry of an order of adjudication.
230 (4)(a) The time limits in subsections (2) and (3) do not
231 include periods of delay resulting from a continuance granted by
232 the court for cause on motion of the child or his or her counsel
233 or of the state. Upon the issuance of an order granting a
234 continuance for cause on a motion by either the child, the
235 child’s counsel, or the state, the court shall conduct a hearing
236 at the end of each 72-hour period, excluding Saturdays, Sundays,
237 and legal holidays, to determine the need for continued
238 detention of the child and the need for further continuance of
239 proceedings for the child or the state.
240 (b) The period for nonsecure detention care under this
241 section is tolled on the date that the department or a law
242 enforcement officer alleges that the child has violated a
243 condition of the child’s nonsecure detention care until the
244 court enters a ruling on the violation. Notwithstanding the
245 tolling of nonsecure detention care, the court retains
246 jurisdiction over the child for a violation of a condition of
247 nonsecure detention care during the tolling period. If the court
248 finds that a child has violated his or her nonsecure detention
249 care, the number of days that the child served in any type of
250 detention care before commission of the violation shall be
251 excluded from the time limits under subsections (2) and (3).
252 Section 5. Subsection (2) of section 985.265, Florida
253 Statutes, is amended to read:

258 detention care only pursuant to a court hearing in which the
259 original risk assessment instrument and the newly discovered
260 evidence or changed circumstances are introduced into evidence
261 with a rescored risk assessment instrument.
262 Section 6. Section 985.27, Florida Statutes, is amended to
264 985.27 Postdisposition detention while awaiting residential
265 commitment placement.—
266 (1) The court must place all children who are adjudicated
267 and awaiting placement in a nonsecure, high-risk, or maximum
268 risk residential commitment program in secure detention care
269 until the placement or commitment is accomplished. Children who
270 are in nonsecure detention care may be placed on electronic
272 (a) A child who is awaiting placement in a nonsecure
273 residential program must be removed from detention within 5
274 days, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. Any
275 child held in secure detention during the 5 days must meet
276 detention admission criteria under this part. The department may
277 seek an order from the court authorizing continued detention for
278 a specific period of time necessary for the appropriate
279 residential placement of the child. However, such continued
280 detention in secure detention care may not exceed 15 days after
281 entry of the commitment order, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and
282 legal holidays, and except as otherwise provided in this
283 section. A child who is placed in nonsecure detention care or
284 nonsecure detention care with electronic monitoring, while
285 awaiting placement in a nonsecure residential program, may be
286 held in secure detention care for 5 days, if the child violates
287 the conditions of the nonsecure detention care or the electronic
288 monitoring agreement. For any subsequent violation, the court
289 may impose an additional 5 days in secure detention care.
290 (b) If the child is committed to a high-risk residential
291 program, the child must be held in secure detention care until
292 placement or commitment is accomplished.
293 (c) If the child is committed to a maximum-risk residential
294 program, the child must be held in secure detention care until
295 placement or commitment is accomplished.
296 (2) Regardless of detention status, a child being
297 transported by the department to a residential commitment
298 facility of the department may be placed in secure detention
299 overnight, not to exceed a 24-hour period, for the specific
300 purpose of ensuring the safe delivery of the child to his or her
301 residential commitment program, court, appointment, transfer, or
303 Section 7. Subsection (1) of section 985.35, Florida

313 witnesses shall be granted. If the child is being detained, the
314 time limitations in s. 985.26(2) and (3) apply.
315 (b) If the child is a prolific juvenile offender under s.
316 985.255(1)(j), the adjudicatory hearing must be held within 45

320 Statutes, is amended to read:
321 985.514 Responsibility for cost of care; fees.—
322 (1) When any child is placed into secure or nonsecure
323 detention care or into other placement for the purpose of being
324 supervised by the department pursuant to a court order following
325 a detention hearing, the court shall order the child’s parents
326 to pay fees to the department as provided in s. 985.039.
327 Section 9. For the purpose of incorporating the amendments
328 made by this act to sections 985.25, 985.255, and 985.26,

335 is charged with an offense that involves the use or possession
336 of a firearm, including a violation of subsection (3), or is
337 charged for any offense during the commission of which the minor
338 possessed a firearm, the minor shall be detained in secure
339 detention, unless the state attorney authorizes the release of
340 the minor, and shall be given a hearing within 24 hours after
341 being taken into custody. At the hearing, the court may order
342 that the minor continue to be held in secure detention in
343 accordance with the applicable time periods specified in s.
344 985.26(1)-(5), if the court finds that the minor meets the
345 criteria specified in s. 985.255, or if the court finds by clear

349 under this subsection which states the period of detention and
350 the relevant demographic information, including, but not limited
351 to, the gender, age, and race of the minor; whether or not the

354 including any pending cases. The form shall be provided to the
355 judge for determining whether the minor should be continued in
356 secure detention under this subsection. An order placing a minor
357 in secure detention because the minor is a clear and present
358 danger to himself or herself or the community must be in
359 writing, must specify the need for detention and the benefits
360 derived by the minor or the community by placing the minor in
361 secure detention, and must include a copy of the form provided
362 by the department.

369 or s. 985.26, and unless there is a need to hold the child, a
370 person taking a child into custody shall attempt to release the

382 purposes of this section. The person to whom the child is
383 released shall agree to inform the department or the person
384 releasing the child of the child’s subsequent change of address
385 and to produce the child in court at such time as the court may
386 direct, and the child shall join in the agreement.

397 (e) If the child appears to be intoxicated and has
398 threatened, attempted, or inflicted physical harm on himself or
399 herself or another, or is incapacitated by substance abuse, to a

402 (f) If available, to a juvenile assessment center equipped
403 and staffed to assume custody of the child for the purpose of

423 affidavit must:
424 (a) Identify the child and, if known, the parents,
425 guardian, or legal custodian.
426 (b) Establish that the child was legally taken into
427 custody, with sufficient information to establish the
428 jurisdiction of the court and to make a prima facie showing that
429 the child has committed a violation of law.
430 Section 12. For the purpose of incorporating the amendment
431 made by this act to section 985.255, Florida Statutes, in a

459 detention is not appropriate may be held in secure detention if
460 the court makes specific written findings that:
461 (a) Respite care for the child is not available.
462 (b) It is necessary to place the child in secure detention
463 in order to protect the victim from injury.
465 The child may not be held in secure detention under this
