Sheriff Terminates Intergovernmental Service Agreement with ICE

Today, Fairfax County Sheriff Stacey Kincaid announced that on May 23, 2018, she will terminate the Intergovernmental Service Agreement (IGSA) with U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). As a result, the Sheriff’s Office will not hold inmates past their release date unless an ICE administrative request to detain is accompanied by a criminal detainer issued by a court.


“I am pleased with Sheriff Stacey Kincaid’s decision to take this step,” Chairman Sharon Bulova said. "The Sheriff and her Deputies operate the County jail and are not federal immigration officials."


The Sheriff’s Office will continue to cooperate with ICE, as it does with other local, state and federal authorities. Operation and policy decisions regarding the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center fall under the authority of the Sheriff, an elected constitutional officer, independent of the Board of Supervisors.
