OAR 859-550-0075
Use of Restraints


It is the Board’s preference to have a youth appear at hearing without physical restraints. If, in the judgment of the youth’s physician, the youth might need restraint, the Board would request that additional secure facility staff attend the hearing with the youth rather than use mechanical restraints. However, the final decision on use of restraints shall lie with the physician.


Any attorney objecting to the youth appearing in restraints at the hearing may raise the issue and ask the Board to take testimony from the physician to justify the use of restraints.
