Home Detention

Home Detention may be ordered by the Court for juveniles residing in DuPage County with a delinquency petition pending or as part of a sentence on a delinquency petition.  Juveniles placed on home detention are electronically monitored and are only allowed to leave their residence for school, work, counseling, or a pre-approved activity with their parent/guardian.  Home Detention offers the Court an alternative to secure detention while providing added safety to the community.  It affords the juvenile the opportunity to remain in their home and maintain continued participation in school and/or work.
