Purpose of Detention Statement
Henry County Juvenile Justice System and community stakeholders believe that the needs of our youth must be balanced with the interest of public safety. Henry County continuum of detention may range from the least restrictive community base supervision to the most restrictive form of secure care. Secure detention may be permissible for a length of time that is necessary to address the child status, ensure court appearance, assess the seriousness of the offense and/or a violation, and determine alternatives based on the risk of the youth, the needs of the family, and the safety of the community.
