Review Summary Report, San Bernardino Central Detention Center

The Los Angeles Office of Detention and Removal Operations performed a review of the San
Bernardino Central Detention Center on May 26, 2006. This review was performed under the
b6, b7c
supervision of
, Reviewer-In-Charge. Team members consisted of officers assigned
from the Los Angeles Office of Detention and Removal Operations.
The review measured compliance with the ICE Detention Standards. No other special
assessments were performed or requested at this time. Attached to this memorandum is a copy of
the original Form G-324B Detention Review Forms. All worksheets and working papers are
maintained in the appropriate file system and are available for review by the Review Authority.

Type of Review:
This review was a routine scheduled assessment and was conducted for the sole purpose of
determining overall compliance with the ICE Detention Standards. Not including the Reviewer in
b6, b7c
Charge, the team members were
Deportation Officer.

Review Summary:
The following review summarizes only those standards not in full compliance. Each Standard is
identified and a short summary is provided regarding standards or procedures not currently in
compliance. In some instances, it appears that the facility meets the standard but is required to
change its operating procedures to comply with language contained in the ICE Detention Standards.
These are considered to be administrative changes that do not affect the daily operation or will have

•

•

an insignificant affect on how the facility is operated. There were 23 acceptable standards and 0
deficient standard.
The facility meets the standard but is being requested to change its operating procedures to
comply with the language contained in the ICE Detention Standard in one area. The
recommendation is to physically secure all knives to a workstation that are not in a secure cutting
room. This is considered to be an administrative change that does not affect the daily operation or
will have an insignificant affect on how the facility is operated.
Overall, the Review indicated substantial compliance with the ICE Detention Standards. The
staff we encountered was courteous, knowledgeable, and professional. They were acceptable and
open to recommendations for changes to their facility.
Constraints of difficulties experienced during the review:
During the review, no constraints or abnonnal difficulties were encountered. Staff and detainees
were cooperative and available to assist reviewers or to answer questions posed by the team.
At Risk or Repeat Findings:
None of the ICE detention standards were found to be at risk during the inspection of this facility.
Recommended Rating and Justification:
The result of a careful evaluation and review of the procedures and operation of the facility
reflects their ability to provide for the proper and humane care of leE detainees within the guidelines
of the ICE Detention Standards. The detention functions are being adequately perfonned. The
deficiencies that exist do not detract from the acceptable accomplishment of the vital functions.
Internal controls are such that there are no perfonnance breakdowns that would keep the program
from continuing to accomplish its mission. As a whole, the documentation viewed supports the
notion that the facility should be rated as acceptable.
RIC Assurance Statement:
It is the opinion of the Reviewer In Charge that the findings of compliance and non-compliance are
documented on the 0-324B Inspection Form and that it is supported by documentation in the review
file.
