North Carolina General Statutes § 143B-821 Authority for implementation

In order to allow for effective implementation of a statewide regional approach to juvenile detention, the Division may:

(1)        Release or transfer a juvenile from one detention facility to another when necessary to administer the juvenile's detention appropriately.

(2)        Plan with counties that operate county detention facilities to provide regional services and to upgrade physical facilities to contract with counties for services and care, and to pay State subsidies to counties providing regional juvenile detention services that meet State standards.

(3)        Allow the State to reimburse law enforcement officers or other appropriate employees of local government for the costs of transportation of a juvenile to and from any juvenile detention facility.

(4)        Seek funding for juvenile detention services from federal sources, and accept gifts of funds from public or private sources.  (1998-202, ss. 1(b), 2(f); 1998-217, s. 57(3); 2000-137, s. 1(b); 2011-145, s. 19.1(l), (t).)
