High-Risk Restrictiveness Level Law and Legal Definition

High-Risk Restrictiveness Level is one of five statutorily authorized restrictiveness levels utilized by the courts for commitment of youth to the Department. Youth assessed and classified for this level of placement require close supervision in a structured residential setting that provides 24-hour-per-day secure custody, care and supervision. Placement in programs in this level is prompted by a concern for public safety that outweighs placement in programs at lower restrictiveness levels. Programs or program models in this level are staff or physically secure residential commitment facilities.
