Night detention is one of the modalities developed as part of the 'Jeugd Terecht'-action programme. It aims to prevent juvenile crime by strengthening the ties between young people and society through family, school and work. Night detention enables youngsters to continue to go to school (or some other day-time activity) during the pre-trial detention phase. Following evaluation of two experimental night detention schemes in Amsterdam and Rotterdam it has been decided to introduce it nationwide.
