260C.501 PARENTAL AND LAW ENFORCEMENT NOTIFICATION.
An emergency shelter and its agents, employees, and volunteers must comply with court
, chapter 260C, and all other applicable laws. In any event, unless other
legal requirements require earlier or different notification or actions, an emergency shelter must
attempt to notify a runaway's parent or legal guardian of the runaway's location and status within
72 hours. The notification must include a description of the runaway's physical and emotional
condition and the circumstances surrounding the runaway's admission to the emergency shelter,
unless there are compelling reasons not to provide the parent or legal guardian with this
information. Compelling reasons may include circumstances in which the runaway is or has been
exposed to domestic violence or a victim of abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
