2005 Connecticut Code - Sec. 46b-141b. Probation treatment plan.

      Sec. 46b-141b. Probation treatment plan. (a) When a juvenile is referred to the Court Support Services Division, the division shall conduct an intake risk assessment and make a case classification evaluation. If the Court Support Services Division deems it appropriate, the proposed probation plan may be submitted to a professional evaluation team. Such team shall be composed of a juvenile probation officer, a representative of the Court Support Services Division who is familiar with the alternative incarceration programs operated by the division or a representative from a contracted agency, and, where applicable, a school employee and any other interested parties in the discretion of the court. The evaluation team shall develop a probation treatment plan for each juvenile within fifteen days of the date of the referral of the case to the professional evaluation team, unless the court orders otherwise. The probation treatment plan shall include the following components: (1) Type of residential or nonresidential placement; (2) projected length of placement for the juvenile and the projected cost; and (3) type of services needed by the juvenile and the projected cost.

      (b) The probation treatment plan shall be submitted to the court for consideration and approval prior to the court's final entry of a probation treatment order. In addition to any probation order, the court may order a medical and psychiatric or psychological examination of the juvenile. The court may assess the cost of the examination to the family based on its ability to pay.

      (c) In ordering implementation of a probation treatment plan, the court may reasonably designate from the programs and services under contract with the Judicial Department the scope and extent of the services to be provided by the Court Support Services Division and the juvenile probation unit.

      (d) The Court Support Services Division shall proceed to implement the probation treatment plan immediately upon its approval by the court.
