Per Curiam.

The Court denies the petition for writ of habeas corpus on the merits. Section 985.24(3), Florida Statutes (2021), prohibits secure detention care for a child alleged to be dependent under chapter 39. This language indicates that secure detention care cannot be used as a remedy in a dependency case. This is not a dependency case, but a delinquency proceeding involving a juvenile who purportedly has been adjudicated as a dependent child already.

Roberts, Osterhaus, and Tanenbaum, JJ., concur.
