Current as of: 2010
(1) The county commissioners shall provide a detention facility for the detention of juveniles to be conducted by the court, or, subject to the approval of the court, by other appropriate public agency, provided that such detention shall comply with the provisions of section 20-518 , Idaho Code; or within the limits of funds provided by the county commissioners the court may arrange for the use of private homes for such detention, subject to the supervision of the court or other agency, or may arrange with any institution or agency to receive for temporary care and custody juveniles within the jurisdiction of the court, provided said private individual or agency facilities, except relatives of the juvenile, shall meet the licensing requirements as provided in this chapter for care of juveniles. Nothing herein shall prevent a jail facility from being utilized as a detention facility if it complies with the provisions of section 20-518 , Idaho Code.
(2) For the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this section, the county commissioners may enter into contracts or agreements with public or private agencies, individuals, other counties, or the department of juvenile corrections which may include the expenditures of moneys outside the county boundaries. If the county in which the court is located has made an agreement with another governmental unit or agency located outside the county or the judicial district for the detention of juveniles under this act, then any court in the county may order a juvenile detained outside of the county or outside of the judicial district in the detention facility described in such agreement.
(3) The county wherein any court has entered an order for the detention of a juvenile outside of the county or outside of the judicial district as provided by subsection (2) of this section shall pay all direct and indirect costs of the detention of the juvenile to the governmental unit or agency owning or operating the detention facility in which the juvenile was detained. The amount of such cost may be determined on a per day per juvenile basis by agreement between the county wherein the court entered the order of detention and the county or governmental unit or agency owning or operating such detention facility.
(4) All funds appropriated by the state for the planning and design of regional detention facilities shall be administered and distributed by the director of the department of administration for the planning and design of regional detention facilities in accordance with the requirements or directives of such appropriation. In administering such fund, the director of the department of administration shall consult with the designated county officials of every county involved or affected by a proposed regional detention facility and shall abide by the decision of the designated representatives of each of the counties so involved or affected.
