ICE Dashboard FAQ
The Salt Lake County Jail interacts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) by: 1) providing access to inmate information regarding citizenship status and country of origin; 2) accepting properly documented ICE detainer requests; and 3) releasing individuals subject to ICE detainer to federal custody once criminal charges are resolved.
Understanding the process
Upon review of the jail’s records management system, ICE may issue a detainer, requesting that the jail hold the individual for no more than 48 hours beyond when that individual would otherwise be eligible for release.
A detainer includes Form I-247 accompanied by an I-200 or I-205 warrant.
Once all local, state, and federal criminal charges are satisfied, ICE has 48 hours (counting weekends and holidays) to take custody of an individual subject to detainer. If the 48 hours pass without ICE taking custody, the individual is released from jail.
