Nakamoto Group gives WCSO good report following ICE inspection

In a year filled with inspections and accreditation visits, the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office received a final three day visit from inspectors of the Nakamoto Group who reviewed the WCSO Jail operation on behalf of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.

The four inspectors arrived Tuesday, Aug. 19 and concluded their visit on Thursday, Aug. 21 with a positive review of the jail operation.
In the exit interview the inspectors stated that they reviewed administrative standards, food service, safety standards, recreation, environmental health, clothing and supplies, security and medical standards.
There are approximately 900 components in the various standards that are reviewed. The items reviewed include everything from detainee mail to a documentation of food temperatures when food is plated in the kitchen. The inspectors also mentioned that two marriages occurred during the past year.

 

 

The inspectors complemented that work of the jail staff, particularly the work of Major Jared Miller, Captain Jackie Martin, Lt. Lindsay Maxwell and Detention Deputies Randy Barnes and Timothy Roche who toured the inspectors around the facilities and assisted them with anything they requested. There were also complements for Armor Medical and Eagle Food Service.

“I’m very proud of my co-workers,” said Sheriff Charlie Creel. “We have a top notch staff here.”

“We work on this (meeting jail standards) all the time,” said Major Miller. “We always get the support we need.”

“We are always looking for ways to improve,” said Lt. Maxwell. “It’s nice to have helpful hints with a different set of eyes.”

“We don’t dress up for these inspections,” said Undersheriff Trey Morrison. “This is part of our everyday activity.”
ICE officials thanked the sheriff and the jail staff for taking the time to assist the inspectors in completing their jobs. It often creates additional work time for the staff.

The trade off from the federal government is more than $2 million a year in jail bed rental revenue for Wakulla County and an economic impact that includes jobs for many citizens.
The ICE inspection is the final group of inspectors that reviewed the agency in 2014. Accreditation visits included reviews of communications, law enforcement and corrections that occurred earlier this year.
