938.22(2)(b) (b) If the department of corrections approves, a juvenile detention facility or a holdover room may be located in a public building in which there is a jail or other facility for the detention of adults if the juvenile detention facility or holdover room is physically segregated from the jail or other facility so that juveniles may enter the juvenile detention facility or holdover room without passing through areas where adults are confined and juveniles detained in the juvenile detention facility or holdover room cannot communicate with or view adults confined in the jail or other facility.
938.22(2)(c) (c) A shelter care facility may be used for the temporary care of children taken into custody under s. 48.19, in need of transitional placements in emergency situations under s. 48.357 (2m), or placed in the shelter care facility by order of the court under ch. 48 and of juveniles taken into custody under s. 938.19, in need of transitional placements in emergency situations under s. 938.357 (2m), or placed in the shelter care facility by order of the court under this chapter, except that on the request of a person licensed to operate a shelter care facility the department may permit that shelter care facility to be used for voluntary placements under s. 48.63 (1) (b). The department shall review such a request based on the needs of children and juveniles in the area served by the shelter care facility and the services provided by the shelter care facility and may approve the request if it determines that the services provided by the shelter care facility would meet those needs. A shelter care facility, other than a holdover room, may not be in the same building as a facility for the detention of adults.
