Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation prohibits the use of restraints on any child appearing in juvenile court unless the court has issued an order finding the use of such restraints is necessary for a particular child.  If restraints are ordered such order shall include findings of fact to support the order and shall require the least restrictive restraints necessary.
