Directive: SS-14-003
Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Warrant

General Order Reference: None

Implementation Date: May 15, 2014

Purpose: To require a warrant from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to detain prisoners.

Scope: Corrections Staff

Detail: The following policy shall govern OPD's response to a request from ICE to hold illegal aliens or suspected illegal aliens.

I.    Staff will consider an ICE detainer a “request to voluntarily hold” a prisoner. The Olympia City Jail will not honor an ICE detainer unless it is accompanied by a warrant.

II.    This does not change Olympia City Jail Policy 75.3.1 as it relates to notifications made to ICE when prisoners are suspected or confirmed illegal aliens. Staff will make notification to ICE when a prisoner is a suspected or confirmed illegal alien.
