ICE recommends you use the A-Number search. If you know the detainee's A-Number, it must be exactly nine digits long. If the A-Number has fewer than nine digits, please add zeros at the beginning. When searching by name, a detainee's first and last names are required and must be an exact match (e.g., John Doe will not find Jon Doe or John Doe-Smith). You are also required to select the detainee's correct Country of Birth. (cannot search for records of persons under the age of 18).

The inmates housed at this facility are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the length of their sentence and the past criminal history). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates.
