From: Ray Brown

We received a public information request for the following: “All policies, procedures and training records regarding cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.”

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) has a contract(s) with the federal government to house and transport federal inmate and detainees and routinely house inmates/detainees for the U.S. Marshals Service and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Complying with the terms of the contract(s) and related regulations are comprehensive and involve nearly all operational divisions of the FCSO, including nearly all policies, procedures, and directives of these divisions as well as nearly all training sessions that are provided to employees who work within those divisions. It is not reasonable to produce that range of material and we respectfully request that some additional clarity be given to those public records that are being requested.

Thank you,

Raymond Brown
Finance Officer
Franklin County Sheriff’s Office
