Juvenile Detention

I understand work crew hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. I understand I am expected report to Family and Juvenile Court prepared to work before 9:00 a.m. I am expected to be on time.

I understand I may not leave early or leave the work crew or work crew site at any time without the work crew supervisor's permission.


I understand I am to bring a lunch. A one-half hour lunch break will be taken at about noon. I understand I will not be allowed to go to a store during the day. A short break will also be taken about mid-morning.


I understand I must dress appropriately for work and the weather. The work crew will be outdoors in all weather conditions. I understand I should wear hard-soled shoes or boots and adequate clothing for comfort and dryness. I may not wear shorts. Clothing with inappropriate words, pictures, symbols, etc. will not be allowed. I will be offered gloves to work with.


I understand I am not to use or possess tobacco products of any kind and/or lighters, matches, or any other incendiary device while on the work crew. I will not bring these items with me to the work crew.


I understand I am not to possess any objects which might be considered weapons, including any type of knife.


I understand I must report any prescribed medications I am using to the work crew supervisor before beginning work. If I must take any prescription medication during the course of the day, it must be in the container in which the prescription was filled. Absolutely no other drugs may be possessed or used during work crew.


If I have any type injury while on work crew, I must immediately report it to the work crew supervisor.


I understand I am never to pick up any of the following items: firearms or other weapons, explosive devices including fireworks, injured, dead, or lost animals, medical waste including syringes, or suspected hazardous waste. If I discover any of these things, I am to immediately report them to the work crew supervisor.


I understand I must behave appropriately while on work crew. Fighting, threatening, bad language, aggressive behavior, horseplay, safety violations, or poor work performance are absolutely prohibited. Any illegal actions will be reported to law enforcement for appropriate response.


I understand that if I am participating in work crew from detention, or while I am on EHM (Electronic Home Monitoring), and I am dismissed from work crew for violating these rules, I will be taken to detention. If I fail to report for or are dismissed from work crew and thereby end up in detention, I will be placed on Level 1 in detention.


I understand that both my attitude and performance on the work crew will be evaluated by the crew supervisor and reported to my probation officer.

I understand that the Thurston County Juvenile Court has zero tolerance for any mental, physical or sexual abuse; gang related behavior; discrimination or harassment of any kind. If anyone or anything makes me feel scared for my personal safety or well being, is treating me inappropriately, is bothering or harassing me, or is asking or demanding things of me that are sexual in nature, I will immediately report my concerns to the work crew supervisor.

I understand I must follow all directions of the work crew supervisor. I understand that any rule violation(s) may result in termination from the work crew program and I will be reported to my probation officer as non-compliant for that day.
