The Sheriff's Office has detention officers trained in CIT and a PREA Coordinator. Incarcerated individuals receive medical, dental, alcohol and psychological treatment at the WCSO. Visitations are weekly and extended through spiritual and telephone communications.
The appropriate level is communications and intelligence sharing. ICE has their individual duties and such duties should be professionally, ethically and morally legal upon collaborating with the Sheriff's Office.
This insight should be carried out between the agency and the community in which the agency serves.
