We have received your request, which was apparently first sent on July 22, 2015, and then sent again on August 6, 2015. We did not receive the request sent on July 22. It appears that it may have gone to our quarantined messages.

We will begin a search for the records you have requested, as follows: all contracts, memorandums of understanding, and other agreements between the Sheriff's Department and any agency of the Federal government, including but not limited to Bureau of Prisons, Citizenship and Immigration Services, Customs and Border Protection, Dept of Homeland Security, Executive Office for Immigration Review, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and U.S. Marshals Service.

We expect to be able to advise you within three weeks of the number of records available and the cost to obtain them.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, you may contact the Sheriff's Public Records Officer, Sergeant Erik Clark.
