ORS 419B.121
Return of runaway children to another state


As used in this section, “home state” and “out-of-state runaway” have the meanings given those terms in ORS 419C.156 (Detention of runaway from another state).


Notwithstanding any provisions in ORS chapter 419A, 419B or 419C prohibiting the detention of children or wards, if the court determines that a child or ward is an out-of-state runaway, the court may place the out-of-state runaway in a placement that the court determines to be the least restrictive setting, including detention, necessary to ensure that the out-of-state runaway is not a danger to self or others pending the return of the out-of-state runaway to the out-of-state runaway’s home state. [1993 c.33 §55; 2019 c.382 §7]
§§ 419B.500 to 419B.524
