Ms. Lipton,

In April of this year you sent in three different but similar request regarding "Aurora Detention Facility." Responses were sent to you that the City of Aurora does not have any connection to this facility located at 3130 N. Oakland Street. This facility and all its information can be obtained from the GEO Group as we have stated previously.

The Aurora Detention Center, which is part of the City of Aurora and Aurora Police Department is located at 14999 E Alameda Pkwy this center is a 72-hour Adult Holding Facility only. People that are sent here are only for holding purposes and not actual "inmates". Most are waiting for their court appearance the next morning because they were just arrested or they are being held due to intoxication and waiting to sober up before being released. People placed here cannot be held for more than 72 hours.

We are asking you to clarify which facility you are requesting information for by the address. Please note that if your request relates to the first facility I mentioned the City of Aurora has no connection at all.

Thank you,

Hi there,

Thank you so much for your last message. I'm hoping I can revisit this request regarding the Aurora Detention Facility. Typically, the city has some agreement with ICE facilities that are privately-operated regarding water and sewage usage; they may also have Emergency Management MOUs or financial agreements regarding compensation for the City's assistance in whatever matters. Can you please confirm that Aurora's financial management department or public safety department does not have any such agreements?

Thanks so much for your help,

From: Horton, Lisa
