My question involves juvenile law in the State of: Indiana
I am a counselor at a Juvenile Detention Center in LaPorte County and writing a grant to purchase breathalyzers to use with the juveniles that come to the center under the influence. We have a very specific protocol to follow to ensure the safety of the juvenile while in our custody. My question is this: I heard from a police officer that they are not allowed to breathalyze a youth without the parents permission because it is now against the law. I have looked everywhere trying to find where it says that and I can't anything concreet. I know in Michigan the State court of appeals upheld a ruling stating that they can not be done so now they just use other observational tools. For the center though we need to know the actual reading because our protocol goes by their reading. Is there anything in Indiana prohibiting their use?
