DRAI Process

Screening using the DRAI

Youth taken into custody (better known as arrest) by law enforcement are screened by the Department's detention screening staff using the DRAI to determine whether a youth should be detained in a secure detention facility, placed on non-secure detention (supervised release) status, or released without any additional supervision.
