Subject 125-4-8 YOUTH SERVICES

Rule 125-4-8-.01 Responsibility

The Department of Corrections shall by this rule and pursuant to O.C.G.A. 49-5-10.1, establish criteria for the periodic review of youth transferred to its custody by the Department of Children and Youth Services; to determine for each youth so transferred if such youth continues to be at risk. Should the Department of Corrections determine that such youth is no longer at risk and there no longer exists a need to incarcerate the youth in the custody of the Department of Corrections, the youth shall be transferred back to the Department of Children and Youth Services.

(a) The Department of Corrections shall apply to such youth standard operating procedures which apply to adult prisoners and which are not inconsistent with any special needs of such youth.
(b) The Department shall provide programs and services to such youth appropriate to their special needs. Any such programs and special needs shall be governed by special standard operating procedures promulgated by the Commissioner.
