Another option is to transport the delinquent offender to the Pima County Juvenile Court Center (PCJCC). The Juvenile Complaint/Referral form shall be completed prior to any juvenile being incarcerated at the detention facility. (See also General Orders 2126.1.)
Officers will use the following guidelines in deciding to detain juveniles:

The juvenile is an escapee from PCJCC (or a similar facility) or has an outstanding warrant.

The juvenile (under age 15) is charged with murder, manslaughter, kidnapping, sexual assault, arson of an occupied structure, armed robbery, or aggravated assault. Juveniles 15 or older arrested under these charges shall be booked at the Pima County Jail.

The juvenile is charged with a delinquent offense and there is no less restrictive alternative that will reduce the risk of serious harm to the juvenile or others (e.g., DUI with severe intoxication). This will require a medical release from the nearest available hospital prior to detention at PCJCC


The juvenile is charged with a serious property crime or a crime of violence other than listed above, which, if committed by an adult, would be a felony, and one or more of the following circumstances exists:

o The juvenile is already detained or on conditional release in connection with another delinquency proceeding.

o The juvenile has a demonstrable record of willful failures to appear in Juvenile Court proceedings.

o The juvenile has a demonstrable record of violent conduct resulting in physical injury to others.

o The juvenile has a demonstrable record of adjudication for serious property offenses.

The felony under investigation,

The type of physical characteristic evidence being sought

A statement that this evidence cannot otherwise be obtained from the
Department or from the Department of Public Safety. This provision of the statute requires the investigating officers to make a records check with their agency and D.P.S.

The relevance of the evidence to the case being investigated

The identity of the individual to be detained for the taking of the evidence. The suspect will be identified in detail, including name, physical description, and
residence and business addresses.

The identity of the investigating officers who will conduct the taking of the
evidence

The place where the evidence will be taken. In most cases, the place for seizure
of the evidence will be the actual location of the suspect. Only when the type of evidence sought is of such a nature that it requires a special location, such as for collection of blood, taking of photographs or conducting a lineup, will the suspect be required to accompany the investigating officers to another location.

The hours during which such evidence can be seized. The time period from seizing physical evidence is limited to not more than three hours and will be done during daylight hours. This limitation will require the investigating officers to make necessary preparations prior to obtaining the evidence.

The time during which the court order remains in effect, not to exceed fifteen days

An indication that the individual has been asked to voluntarily give the evidence to the officer and has refused to cooperate
Interview rooms shall be monitored either in person or via department-authorized audio/video surveillance for the entire time these rooms are in use to ensure immediate response to an arrestee who is in distress or requires attention.
Detainees secured in interview rooms shall be secured to a stationary item expressly designed for secure detention purposes (e.g., a handcuff ring).
If a detainee cannot be secured to, or is temporarily released from, the handcuff ring (e.g., the arrestee is released to use the restroom), the department member shall remain in direct observation of the detainee until he or she is secured to the handcuff ring, transported to the jail or prison, or released.
The responsible member shall ensure the welfare, safety, and security of the detainee until his/her release or transfer. The member shall conduct an in-person check of the detainee's welfare at a minimum of fifteen (15) minute intervals.
Detainees held in an interview room are the responsibility of the member who places them in the room until they are released to another sworn department member. As such, it is imperative that the officer responsible for the initial placement of a detainee into an interview room thoroughly search both the detainee and the room prior to placement, and the room again after removal. The mere fact that another officer has already searched a detainee does not preclude further officers from conducting similar searches.
As most interview rooms are not equipped with panic alarms, members are reminded to utilize their handheld radios to call for emergency assistance as necessary.
While a subject is kept in an interview room, the interior light of that room shall be on.
While prisoners are occasionally hospitalized, guard duty is not always undertaken for each prisoner. During those instances when guard duty is undertaken, the Prisoner Guard Duty protocol outlined under General Order 2170 shall be followed.

Prisoners may be secured via handcuffs, leg irons, or any other method necessary to prevent escape without hindering medical personnel.

No visitors shall be permitted without the express permission of the assigned detective supervisor. Generally, only members of the prisoner's immediate family are allowed visitation rights. A lawyer may be allowed to visit a client after it has been verified that the person is the prisoner's lawyer. Officers assigned to guard hospitalized felons shall maintain a log listing the names and addresses of all visitors during their tour of duty. These logs will be submitted with the Logbook upon its return to Headquarters.

Visitors will be frisked for weapons or contraband prior to having contact with the prisoner. Packages, purses, or other items carried shall be subject to search and removed from the proximity of the visitor and the prisoner during the visit. Visitors are not entitled to privacy for their visit.

A lawyer visiting a client will be searched for weapons prior to having contact with the prisoner. Lawyers will be permitted private communication with the prisoner. The guarding officer is required to maintain a visual presence.

All other visitors shall remain under police observation while with a prisoner.
