7 August 2013

We published a short guide on non-compliance with community CTOs.

You can read it here. An eagle-eyed mental health officer spotted that, unlike a short-term detention certificate, the period of 28 days starts from the granting of the S114 certificate, not the beginning of the day it is granted.


  • An STDC granted at 3PM in 1st September expires at midnight at the end of 28th September, but:
  • A S114 certificate granted at the same time would expire at 3PM on 29th September.
