The Lake County IL Juvenile Detention - Hulse Juvenile Detention Center is a medium to low-security detention center located at 25467 N Milwaukee Ave Vernon Hills, IL that is operated locally by the Juvenile Justice Department and holds youths awaiting the determination of punishment for the crimes which they are accused. Most of the adolescents are here for less than two years.

All police referrals to the Juvenile Court are processed by Juvenile Intake. Every case received is reviewed for prior history of arrests or court history and an attempt to divert cases from a formal court action is made when appropriate. One alternative to formal court action is Voluntary Supervision. Voluntary Supervision requires the youth and family to follow similar conditions that the court might order but skips the court process and agreements are made voluntarily by signing a contract. Diversion through this program allows the juvenile court judges to focus on the more serious delinquent cases while providing families with the supervision and programs necessary to make needed changes in their lives. When Diversion is not appropriate, a delinquent petition is recommended to the State's Attorney's office and once filed, the formal court process is scheduled.

When the police believe that a juvenile should be held in secure detention they bring him or her in custody to the Intake Unit. Intake Officers screen youth to determine if the criteria for secure detention are met. Following the screening process youth are either admitted to detention or released to their parent or guardian pending court action.

An alternative to secure detention is home detention. Home detention allows youth who are cooperative and at lower risk to re-offend to remain home while pending their court hearings under constant adult supervision. Face to face visits are made at random times daily by program staff to assure compliance with the program's strict rules and conditions.

The Hulse Juvenile Detention Center provides temporary secure custody for youth who have been charged with a delinquent act (criminal offense) and who have been determined a high risk to re-offend or who would likely flee the jurisdiction of the court if released. Only those who meet the strict criteria for detention are admitted. Once admitted, youth-only remain in detention for the duration of the court process, unless released sooner by the court. When the court process is completed most youth are released to their parents on probation or to another disposition the court could order such as long term residential treatment, or the Department of Juvenile Justice (state corrections). The youths adjustment while in secure detention is often used by the court to determine if youth can adequately be supervised once returned to the community.

During their stay in secure detention, youth will maintain contact with their parent(s) or guardian by phone or on-site once they receive approval to visit. This is a time for the youth and family to evaluate their situation and begin the planning for any needed adjustments or changes in their lives. All youth attend school on-site and participate in a variety of other programming offered. Any assessments or interviews ordered by the court will be facilitated as required.
