A detention period is the period spent in a particular detention centre for a particular type of detention (pre-court detention, pre-sentence detention, sentenced detention). A detention period starts when:
• the person is received into detention
• the person is transferred to another detention centre
• the person is transferred to the custody of another jurisdiction (e.g. adult corrective services, police custody, interstate)
• the type of detention changes (pre-court detention, pre-sentence detention, sentenced detention)
• the person returns to detention following an escape or abscond.
Detention periods may be concurrent where the detention types are different; that is, the detention start date may be before the detention end date of the previous order. For example, a young person's period of sentenced detention begins 1 January and ends 1 June. On 1 February, they are placed on remand (pre-sentence detention) until 10 February. There are two detention periods, a period of sentenced detention from 1 January to 1 June and a period of pre-sentence detention from 1 February to 10 February.
Detention periods cannot be concurrent where the detention types are the same. If the young person in the example above is placed in sentenced detention following the end of period of remand on 10 February, this is included in the first period of sentenced detention.
