27 Detention in place other than prison

If the court orders the detention of the person at any time under this Part, but is of the opinion that, because of the circumstances of the case, it would be dangerous to the life or pose a significant risk to the health of the person to detain the person in a prison, it may order that the person be held in custody—

(a)

at the place where the person is for the time being; or

(b)

at any other place to which the court considers that the person can be removed without danger to the person’s life or risk to the person’s health—

until such time as the person can, without such danger or risk, be detained in a prison or is surrendered or is discharged according to law.
