Senate Bill 710: Restraint and Involuntary Seclusion

About Senate Bill 710

Senate Bill 710  passed in 2021. It outlines provisions for what is prohibited and permissible relating to restraint and involuntary seclusion of children receiving services from licensed child-caring agencies. SB 710 added new reporting requirements any time restraints and involuntary seclusion are used on a child in care.

This provision applies to any secure transport provider who is based in Oregon, transporting any child in care who lives in Oregon or is being transported through Oregon to or from a school, organization or other child-caring agencies.

The Children’s Care Licensing Program adopted temporary rules to meet the expectations defined by this legislation, see temporary administrative order CWP19-2021  .
