, Stats., requesting revocation of the youth's aftercare status.
If an aftercare provider initiates revocation proceedings, the aftercare provider may place a youth under its supervision on administrative detention pending the outcome of the revocation proceedings.

The youth will engage in an activity that violates a conduct rule or court-ordered condition of aftercare.
The youth will not achieve the goals and objectives of his or her aftercare.
If a youth under aftercare supervision of the department is removed from an approved placement, whether from the youth's own home or from an alternate care placement and a suitable alternative placement is not readily available, the department may place the youth at a type 1 secured correctional facility on administrative detention until a suitable alternate placement is found.
