Detention is an essential component of the juvenile justice system. Detention options are short-term and appropriate to the level of risk posed by the youth. Detention services are designed to safeguard the community and/or ensure the juvenile’s appearance at subsequent court hearings.
Coos County currently contracts with Douglas County to provide Detention services. Upon authorization for youth to be detained, the youth is transported to Douglas County Juvenile Detention in Roseburg, Oregon by either a Juvenile Department staff or a representative from Oregon Youth Authority. Detention hearings are usually held via video conferencing.
