The facility could not provide documentation signifying that department heads and
deportation officers conduct unannounced visits to the facility's living and activity areas.
Logs are not maintained tracking detainee request form receipt and response activity.
Copies of detainee request foTITIS are not maintained in detention files .

Tool Control - Deficient
•
•
•

The tool room officer did not have accountability of items on shadow board
Multi purpose tool set missing and not accounted for
Water hoses twenty-five feet in length were found in housing units not under inventory
control

Multiple cutting grinding wheels displayed on the tool room shadow boards were not accounted for
by the tool room officer. Parts belonging to a multi purpose tool set located in the tool room were
missing and not properly accounted for. Water hoses twenty-five feet in length, which could be used
as a security breach, were located within each housing unit unaccounted for. Assessment of the unit
logbooks revealed that housing units were not maintaining inventory of the water hose's.

Si2nificant Observations and Best Practices

Staff Appearance - Significant Observation
TCE and contract security staff dressed appropriately and presented a neat a professional appearance
appearance. They appeared to be very knowledgeable about their individual post assignments. Staff
was also very thorough in conducting searches of incoming personnel to prevent contraband from
entering the facility via the main entrance.
Facility Operation During Unforeseen Incident-Significant Observation
During the annual review, the facility experienced an unforeseen incident with the rupture of a main
fire suppression water line serving the facility (Water used for daily facility operation was never
affected). Facility staff immediately responded to the situation and assured the health and safety of
detainees and employees was maintained. Calls were made to the local police and fire departments
to advise ofthe facility's situation, in the event additional support was requested. Mobile water
generating pumps were set up near irrigation canals immediately outside of the perimeter fence, in
the event that water needed to be pumped into the facility for fire suppression. Facility personnel
immediately worked out particulars that were necessary to have the suppression system repaired and
back into operational order.
Main Entrance Security - Best Practice
Security officers at the facility's main entrance were very keen and attentive to all persons entering
and departing the facility. Officers effectively searched incoming articles within handbags and
computer carriers. Officers requested and verified photo identification of all individuals at entry
prior to the issuance of a visitors pass. Officers subsequently verified the photo identification of
individual's prior to their departure from the facility.
RIC Observations

The ICE Officer-In-Charge, Private Security Project Manager and their entire staff were very
supportive of the review team and assisted the team completely throughout the review.
RIC Issues and Concerns:

Water and gas service valve cover caps on the asphalt surface within the perimeter are not secured.
The metal caps could easily be removed and used as a weapon to cause injury. The facility is
currently preparing for accreditation by the American Correctional Association (ACA). The facility
may experience limitations in their ability to become compliant with the ACA standards without
permanent guidance in place to cDnduct proper oversight and guidance.
Recommended Rating and Justification:

The Reviewer-In-Charge recommends that the facility receive a rating of "Acceptable." The facillty
complies with 34-of-38 applicable ICE National Detention Standards. The facility should respond to
all findings and initiate a Plan of Action in response to the deficiencies.

There were three computers in the law library used for access to Lexus Nexus. The computers are located
behind a wall in a secured room . Inmates have access to the key board and can view the monitor behind the
wall through a window. The disks in the computers were checked for revision dates. The reviewer found that
the computers contained disks in which the Lexus Nexus information was downloaded to. The disks were
labeled as 'INSERTS". The law library officer stated that the ADP personnel down load the Lexus Nexus
information (two disks) to one disk which eliminates the need of changing floppy disks. The reviewer
suggested to the OIC that the AOP personnel may want to add a revision date to the floppy's in which the
Lexus Nexus information is downloaded to.

It should be noted that this faciltty has a complete physical law library in addrtion to the Lexus Nexus.

The dishwashing room at the facility is currently under construction due to plumbing and drainage problems.
The facility uses Styrofoam plates, paper cups and plastic utensils. Cooking equipment and utensils are
washed using the three sink method as described in the Standard.
The facility currently has a staff of 10 employees' in the kitchen. Due to budget constraints, yearly training
has not been available from outside sources. In May of 2005, the FSA implemented a video training system
which exceeds the standard. Staff is required to complete the video training system yearly. Volunteer
workers are also trained with the video system.
The training records of the kitchen staff were checked of which 6 have completed the training and 4 are in the
process.
The reviewer observed recording device's used in the refrigeration units which continuously record
temperature levels and their duration which is very useful during power outages.
The kitchen staff is to be commended on their successful operation.

RECOMMENDATION: Currently the method of conducting the weekly audit of the detainee funds is to count
the funds and match the amount to the total of the G-589s. Example, there are 146 G-589s totaling
$12,000.00 and the money is counted to ensure there is $12,000 .00 in cash. The problem is that there is no
record of exactly how many G-589s are suppose to be present. If one was missing, it would not be known
until the detainee was getting cash off his books. There would be better accountability to have a logbook
recording the G-589s in number order and then verifying the G-589 numbers with the numbers in a logbook
of the detainees in custody at the facility. On the audit, there is no need to verify the amount of money; the
shift supervisors count the money every shift change . The number of G-589s on hand need to be verified with
the number of G-589s for the detainees still in custody .

RECOMMENDATION: Currently the method of conducting the weekly audit of the detainee funds is to count
the funds and match the amount to the total of the G-589s. Example, there are 146 G-589s totaling
$12,000.00 and the money is counted to ensure there is $12,000.00 in cash. The problem is that there is no
record of exactly how many G-589s are suppose to be present. If one was missing, it would not be known
until the detainee was getting cash off his books. There would be better accountability to have a logbook
recording the G-589s in number order and then verifying the G-589 numbers with the numbers in a logbook
of the detainees in custody at the facility . On the audit, there is no need to verify the amount of money; the
shift supervisors count the money every shift change . The number of G-589s on hand need to be verified with
the number of G-589s for the detainees still in custody.

The CCTV control room runs mock drills every shift. They run different scenarios to be prepared for
actual incidents. The mock drills cover all possible scenarios such as bo~hreats, civil
disturbances, HAZ-MAT incident, hostage situation, etc. Excellent preparedness tool.

All areas must have inventories that reflect the proper amount of tools that are presently on hand.
There were multiple metal cutting grinder wheels on one hook. The officer was asked how many were
inventoried, he stated 3. There were 8 blades on the hook.
Several multi tool sets were misSing parts and not properly accounted for, however, upon re-inspection
the second day, it was already being corrected. The facility needs to be reminded that proper tool
accountability needs to always be a top priority.
There are water hoses, approximately 25 feet long which could be used in an escape, in all housing units
that are currently not marked nor being Inventoried. Neither the housing un it officers nor the tool room
officer are accounting for these items.
