Physically Secure Facility Law and Legal Definition

Physically secure facility means a facility that relies primarily on the use of construction and hardware such as locks, bars, and fences to restrict freedom.

The following is an example of a state law that provides a statutory framework regarding physically secure facility:

A court may punish any child for contempt for interfering with the court or with court administration. A child who commits direct contempt of court or indirect contempt of a valid court order may be taken into custody and ordered to serve an alternative sanction or placed in a secure facility, as authorized in this section, by order of the court. [Fla. Stat. § 984.09].
