SUBJECT:

Macomb County Sheriff s Department Annual Detention Review

The Detroit Field Office, Office of Detention and Removal conducted a detention review of the
Macomb County Sheriff s Department on April 28 and May 1, 2006. This review was conducted by
""T1,O>""'T in Charge, and Team Member,
This facility is used for
U,-,LU'U""" requiring housing more than 72 hours. Attached to tills memorandum is a copy of the
original Form G-324a Detention Inspection Form and a copy of the worksheet.

Type of Review:
This review is a scheduled Operational Review to determine general compliance with established
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) National Detention Standards.

Review Summary:
The Facility is not accredited by the American Correctional Association (ACA). As with other
facilities within the State of Michigan, the Macomb County Sheriff's Department has been inspected
and approved by the Michigan Department of Corrections and has received 100% compliance with
their regulations for four years in a row. Their medical department also holds NCCHe accreditation
and has for the past 17 years.

Review Findings:
The following information summarizes those standards not in compliance. Each standard is
identified and a short summary provided regarding standards or procedures not currently in
compliance.

RIC Observations:

•
•
•
•

BEST PRACflCE: Correction Officers were well versed in policies and procedures as
well as being professional and courteous.
Administration answered all questions and had policy manuals at arm's reach.
The Facility was clean and orderly.
Attitudes of both correction officers and inmates was positive and upbeat.
The Macomb County Sheriffs Department is used by the Detroit Sector Border Patrol for
lodging detainees on a short-term basis, usually 1 to 7 days. They are either Mexican
nationals that have requested a Voluntary Return to Mexico and are awaiting the next
JPATS flight (it runs every Tuesday) or a detainee that is to be turned over to the Detroit
Field Office on the next business day.

Issues and Concerns
The only "At-Risk" category was the Staff Detainee Communications section. Although the facility
is rated on these items, it is actually up to DHS personnel to provide the information and notices that
are needed to fully comply with this standard.

Recommended Rating and Justification:
It is the Reviewer in Charge recommendation that the facility receive a rating of "ACCEPTABLE".
The facility continues to make progress for full implementation of the ICE Detention Standards.
The facility now fully complies with 34 of 38 standards ( three of these are non-applicable). The
RIC recommends that the RIC review standards found to be deficient within 90 days after receipt
and concurrence of the Facilities plans of action.

RIC Assurance Statement:
All findings of this review have been documented on Form 0-324B and are supported by the written
documentation contained in the review file.
