    The ones I've been in to put the juveniles I've arrested wear the orange just like everywhere else.

    I have seen some group/home facility type that let them wear civilian clothes though, but a DETENTION facility.... orange.

    It depends on the juvenile detention center. I have 3 near me. Each has a specific uniform, none of which are "normal athletic clothing". 1 has brown jumpsuits. 1 has orange jumpsuits. The 3rd is more like a school, they wear khaki pants and a pullover shirt with the center's logo on it.

    Depends on the center really. There's one I know that wears junpsuits (white & orange), one that wear uniform like outfits, and one that lets you wear regular clothes but other people from outside have 2 bring them or u bring them when u come, if u dont bring anything they have jumpsuits.

    Depends opn the detention center and what their policies are. If the teen is suicidal, or appears to be, he/she will most likely be put in a jump suit or something similar.

    It all depends on the facility. We wear Blue shorts, and 3 colors of t-shirts (depending on their behavioral level) , and tennis shoes. For court they wear Blue sweat pants and bottoms.
