Isolation

Clockwise from top left: Alameda County Juvenile Detention Center, San Leandro, CA; Harrison County Juvenile Detention Center, Biloxi, MS; King County Youth Service Center, Seattle, WA; Fairbanks Youth Facility, Fairbanks, AK.

In juvenile treatment facilities, the stay-time in isolation and observation rooms can vary from short-term (like time-out sites) to longer term.

At Giddings State School in Texas, pictured above, kids can be kept in isolation cells for up to 14 days, totally segregated from the general population.
