POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Upon receipt of the Court Minutes, the Records Assistant will complete the following steps:

Check for local wants/warrants.

Go into the arrest system and verify if the defendant has ever been incarcerated on the charge that the inmate is being remanded for.

A Case Number has already been issued by the Clerk of the Courts.

Documents Needed

Court Minutes from the Clerk's Office remanding the defendant to custody

Physical Descriptor

Prints

Fingerprint all remanded inmates. If the remanded inmate was booked previously on that particular charge, then do a “10 print ID only choice” on the Live Scan machine (option 3). In the message screen, FDLE will respond with a SID number. This will provide a copy of the inmate’s prints for a remand that positively IDs the inmate, and will not issue an OBTS number. Use this to positively identify the subject. Print out the card and fill out the other necessary information on the print card and place it in the inmate’s folder. If the Live Scan machine is down, do a hard card.

Delousing New Inmates

 

 

 

 

Sheriff of Monroe County

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities that all inmates that are processed into the facility will be required to shower. The use of quell shampoo will be on the orders of the nurse on duty ONLY.

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all Certified Deputies.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Intake/Release Deputies.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

The last step in the intake process is for the inmate to shower in the Property Shower Area. It is here that inmates will exchange their street clothes for a clean, laundered inmate uniform. [ALDF-2A-26]

If a deputy notices an inmate has “bugs” and there is no order to quell the inmate, the deputy will notify Medical about the possible infestation and request Medical checks the inmate again before placing the inmate in the shower. If needed, Medical will order the quell shampoo for the inmate.

If a female inmate has “bugs” and is under the age of 55, they will be tested to see if they are pregnant unless we know for sure that they cannot reproduce (e.g., post hysterectomy). This may mean isolating some females who are highly suspected to have “bugs” so that they are not carrying them to the dorms/units.

It is also here that inmates will be required to take a shower using the quell shampoo on the orders of the nurse on duty ONLY. Prior to an inmate going into the shower area, you must explain the process to them. After it is explained, start the process.

NOTES:

IF ANY INMATE HAS OPEN SORES,

CONTACT MEDICAL!

****PREGNANT FEMALES CANNOT BE

QUELLED****

IF ANY FEMALE INMATE IS UNSURE IF SHE

IS PREGNANT, CONTACT MEDICAL!

If the inmate is being quelled:

Hand the inmate the container of quell shampoo.

Have the inmate step into the shower area, undress, and take a shower.

If utilized, the quell shampoo must stay on the body for four (4) minutes and then be rinsed completely off.

Marathon (KV) and Plantation Key (PK) Facilities will also adhere to the following:

o Direct the inmate to the Isolation Cell for the showering process.

o If the Isolation Cell is unavailable, the inmate should be changed into a blue uniform and escorted into the Dorm Area where he will be required to shower.

NOTE: If a KV/PK inmate is quelled in the Dorm Area, he should be given another blue uniform to put on after showering. No inmate should be escorted to the Dorm Area in street clothes.

Extradition Proceedings

_____________________

 

 

 

 

Sheriff of Monroe County

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities for extraditing fugitives.

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all Records Personnel and the Intake/Release Sergeant.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Records Assistants.

DEFINITIONS:

Fugitive - A person that leaves (flees) demanding state either before conviction or after conviction of a crime.

JUDICIAL PROCESS:

Charge is filed and warrant of arrest is issued and placed in FCIC/NCIC.

Fugitive is located by authorities.

Authorities in demanding state are notified, and those authorities request the suspect be held.

Fugitive is taken before a magistrate. If it appears to the magistrate that the person is the one charged in the demanding state and has fled from justice, he shall commit him to the county jail for (30) thirty days to allow the demanding state time to submit formal extradition papers (see F.S.S. 941.15). This thirty (30) day period can be extended for an additional sixty (60) days (see F.S.S. 941.17).

The proper procedure for court appearances on extradition in the State of Florida is an initial (First) appearance after arrest on the fugitive warrant. At that time if the subject does not waive, a thirty (30) day hearing is scheduled. At the thirty (30) day hearing if the Governor's Warrant has not been perfected, a sixty (60) days extension is granted. No more than three (3) hearings should be held before service of the Governor's Warrant.

The magistrate may admit the fugitive to bail during this period of time in such sum as to insure his appearance at subsequent hearings and at the time the Governor's Warrant arrives. However, if the offense charged is punishable by death or life imprisonment, the fugitive may not be released on bail.

Florida State Statutes prohibit bonding on a Governor's Rendition Warrant [see F.S.S. 941.10(2)].

Dissemination Date: 5/10/13

Previous Revision Date(s): 9/15/99, 1/19/11

Effective Date: 517/13

 

 

 

 

NOTE: Some states still admit bonding on a Governor's Rendition Warrant. If the Governor's Warrant is perfected after the ninety (90) day fugitive warrant period expires, the Governor's Warrant is still valid and the fugitive may be arrested again on this warrant.

Once the fugitive has been apprehended, the agency seeking the extradition should immediately be notified and asked to confirm whether or not they will extradite.

Once the documents arrive in the Governor's Office, they are reviewed for

legal sufficiency. If approved, the Governor's Requisition and Agent's Appointment are prepared and forwarded to the asylum state's Governor's Rendition which is sent to the asylum county for service. In the reverse, a demand is sent to this office by the demanding state and after legal review a warrant is issued and forwarded to the holding county for service.

Fugitive is arrested on the Governor's Warrant and is taken before a judge or a court of record where he or she is informed of the demand made against him, the crime in which he is charged, his right to counsel, and his right to test the legality of his arrest in a habeas corpus proceeding (see F.S.S. 941.10). If the fugitive wants to petition for a writ of habeas corpus, the judge shall fix a "reasonable time" to allow the filing of the petition, and shall set a time and place for a hearing on the petition.

NOTE: Prosecutors in the asylum state, as a courtesy to the demanding state, should expedite these habeas corpus proceedings as quickly as possible. In some instances, attorneys for the defendants have taken advantage of this phase of time to file habeas corpus petitions and have asked for hearing dates far into the future.

At the habeas corpus hearing, the fugitive is limited to challenging whether he or she is substantially charged with a crime, the legal sufficiency of the extradition documents as to legal form, whether or not he or she is a fugitive from justice, and raising the claim

that he or she is not the person sought by the demanding state. The burden is upon him or her to show non-identity. A photograph and/or fingerprints or a complete physical description should be provided, where possible, to assist the prosecution in the asylum state in establishing identity. Most states require some type of identification be included in the extradition paperwork.

When the fugitive is arrested on an out-of- state charge(s), the arresting deputy will provide a teletype upon arrival (message retrieval) VIA MR: to Records Assistant FCIC/NCIC Terminal on the fugitive.

All fugitive (out-of-state) arrest must attend a mandatory first appearance before bonding even if the teletype states a bond. Once the arrestee has seen the first appearance judge and he or she has set a bond, the arrestee may bond. Once the bond has been posted, call the Clerk of the Courts to have an extradition hearing scheduled. Use the Arraignment Date Form for notification.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Fugitive is Located and Arrested via:

FCIC/NCIC hit

Teletype request

Correspondence

Fugitive Paperwork is Prepared

The following information will be needed:

Affidavit for each warrant

LIVESCAN TRAINING

Each deputy has his or her own login to start the computer. The LiveScan machine runs on a Windows platform and uploads the fingerprints to Tallahassee via our ISP. Once the prints arrive at Tallahassee, they have to be manually classified according to the swirls and whorls. From there, they are uploaded into the database and the top three matches are selected. An analyst must then manually match the minutiae to identify an exact match.

We need to log all fingerprints from the LiveScan machine into the OBTS (Offender Based Transaction System) Logbook.

When first coming to the screen, an OBTS number will be displayed. Select “Next” and the Demographic screen will come up. Enter the Case Number. Enter the subjects name starting with Last Name, First Name, Middle Name, and Suffix. E.g. Sr., Jr., etc… A maximum of 30 Characters may be input into this field. If the subject’s name is longer than 30 characters then you may use the subject’s middle initial.

Next, is a drop down menu for the subject’s gender: Select Male or Female.

Next is a drop down menu for Race. Hispanic is not a choice. If a person is light Hispanic, you may use “White.” If a subject is a dark Hispanic, you may use “Black.”

Date of birth is to be entered by month, day and year. All four numbers of the year must be input.

Once you have ensured the information is correct, select Next.

DO NOT USE MOIST WIPES ON THE SCAN AREA!!

If you use moist wipes on the scan area, moisture will get into the machine and destroy it. Each Scanning module costs around $3,000.00 and is only manufactured in Germany. Replacement will take a very long time!!

Use the green cloth provided to wipe away any ghost images. You may use the moisture wipes on a subject’s hands, but allow them to dry briefly before scanning.

Place the subject’s fingers on the scanning area and then either select “Scan” on the touch screen with your finger or mouse, or depress the foot pedal. When you hear the tone, begin rolling. Once you hear the second tone, remove the subject’s hand from the scanning area. If you do not remove the hand, you will get and error message and have to re-scan.

The first screen is the Thumb Slap. Both thumbs are placed together on the large scan pad so they make an imprint inside the blue box. Use only as much pressure as needed to clearly see the prints. Scan the thumbs. Once you are finished you will get a message saying the scan is complete and will prompt you to move on to the next screen. You may either select “Next” on the touch screen or use the mouse or depress the foot pedal.

The first hand to be printed will be the Right Hand. First is the Four-Finger Slap. The fingers must be orientated as closely to North/South on the scan pad as possible. The four-finger slap becomes the reference for all other prints from the subject, so it is very important to print these correctly.

DO NOT PRINT THE FOUR-FINGER SLAP AT AN ANGLE!!

Doing so will cause the entire print card to be rejected and we will have to re-print the subject. If the fingers are at a slant, the machine cannot properly map the minutiae and will therefore be unable to confirm if subsequent prints are from the same subject.

Place the four fingers on the large scan pad ensuring that all show clearly within the blue box. Once you are ready, scan the four-finger slap. Move on to the next screen.

When rolling fingers, place the finger on the small screen. When you are ready, depress the foot pedal and roll the finger and lift it off in a smooth motion and lift the finger off the scan pad. You will see the print magnified on the display as you roll it. You will not get a second tone. If you leave the finger on the scan pad you will receive an error message. If you do not roll the finger after pressing scan (either by touch screen or foot pedal), you will get an error message and must re-scan.

You may roll the fingers in either direction across the scan pad. Place the finger on its edge to one side of the blue cross-mark, which is in the center of the screen. As you roll the finger, the center of the print should fall as close as possible to the center of the cross-mark.

Please ensure the following when fingerprinting:

Do not use too much pressure: You will see the prints will be very dark on the screen, making it difficult to identify individual minutiae.

Ensure the Delta’s are clearly visible before moving on to the next screen.

We have several new prints we are scanning with the LSS3000R. These are Upper Palm, Lower Palm and Writer’s Palm.

When printing the upper palm, be sure and place the upper portion of the palm below the blue line. The fingertips are used as reference to ensure the correct hand is being printed. You should place the thumb under the slanted edge of the scan pad. In most cases this will place the upper palm in the correct position. Please ensure the palm and fingers are oriented as North/South on the scan pad as possible to get the best comparison.

The Lower Palm is next, and you will see a blue line running across the top 1/3rd of the screen. The top line (or Heart Line) of the palm should be placed ON the blue line. The machine will use the upper palm print just scanned to match to the lower palm.

Lastly, you will scan the Writer’s Palm. This is an image of the palm on its edge as if you were writing with a pen. Place the edge of the palm inside the blue box on the right side of the scan pad. When the image is clear, scan.

You have now completed the Right Hand. The same steps will be repeated for the Left Hand.

Once the two hands are completed, the machine will save, compile and display the Ten Print Card. A letter grade will be shown next to each print. “A” is best, but if you see an “R” you MUST rescan that print. You may either select an individual print by using the mouse or touch screen. When you select a print, a yellow box will highlight it. Select, “Reprint” and a screen will come up prompting you to rescan the print.

After you have completed all the prints and are satisfied with them, touch “Next” on the bottom of the screen and then touch “Finish.” The foot pedal will not work on these two screens. The machine will automatically send the prints to Tallahassee for evaluation.

After Tallahassee have received, acknowledged and evaluated the prints, they will send a series of messages back to the machine. When the DDCE is complete, the machine will print the cards.

The LSS3000R must be restarted at least once per day. If you are responsible for restarting the machine, you must ensure the scan pads are clear of ghost images first. Upon restarting, the machine recalibrates the scan pads. If there are any ghost images, you will not be able to get them off no matter how much you clean the scan pad!

If you happen to get a subject that has a bandage or an amputation, select “Options” when you’re ready to scan that print. Select either “Amputee” or “Bandaged” then print as much of the affected area as possible.

Please ensure that the subject removes any wedding bands they are allowed to keep while in jail before they are fingerprinted so as not to scratch the surface of the scan pads.

Sheriff of Monroe County

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities that inmate holds will be processed in an accurate and expeditious manner in order to prevent a premature release or unlawful detention.

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all Records Personnel.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Records Assistants.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Placing Holds on Inmate

Placing holds on inmates will be accomplished as follows:

When an inmate is received requiring a hold for another jurisdiction, a hold order, teletype or similar document is required. If a hold is placed without one of these documents, it must be verified by the Records Supervisor.

NOTE: Records Personnel shall note all holds and detainers in SmartCop. When

ready to be placed into an inmate’s file, they will be photocopied onto fluorescent orange paper so that it will be immediately visible to anyone reviewing the file’s contents.

When placing a hold that requires identification verification, attach an information form to the inmate's file stating that the hold will be verified as soon as possible. When verified with the appropriate agency, ensure that a teletype message is sent to the appropriate jurisdiction by the Records Assistant stating a hold will be placed.

Notify the respective agency by telephone if needed. When we receive an inmate with a hold for a contract agency (e.g., U.S. Marshal, Customs, Border Patrol, Immigration & Customs Enforcement), the date, time, and name of person notified shall be placed in the inmate’s file.

An affidavit must be completed by the Arresting Deputy or Intake/Release Sergeant on all holds, and the inmate will be advised of the hold at 1st Appearance.

For U.S. Marshal (USM), Customs, Border Patrol, and Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) inmates/detainees, the 203 form or other likewise detainer form along with the Order to Detain or Release Alien form will be forwarded to the BOC Finance Assistant on each inmate/detainee.

Effective Date: 517/13

 

 

 

Removal of Holds

Holds must be removed from SmartCop and the orange Detainer Information Form in the inmate’s file. Write “cancel hold via confirmation from teletype” on the detainer cancelled on line of the Detainer Information Form.

Inmate Cleared of all Local Charges and has a Hold for another Jurisdiction

When an inmate is clear of all local charges and has a hold for another jurisdiction, a teletype message will be sent to that agency notifying them that they have ten days in which to pick up the inmate or he or she will be released. If the other jurisdiction does not pick up the inmate and has not responded with a time to pick up the inmate, that inmate must be taken before our county judge for further instructions.

NOTE: If the agency notifies that they are in route, the inmate will not be released until the agency arrives.

Out-of-County Pick-Up Order

When an out-of-county pick up request is made for a Monroe County inmate(s) who has an open case in Monroe County, the hearing judge and Monroe County State Attorney's Office must be informed by telephone and sent a faxed copy of the Pick-Up Order before allowing the out-of- county agency to pick up the inmate(s). This is to ensure the inmate is not out-of-county when our county judge is ready to hear the inmate's case. Our judge hearing the case must agree to the Pick-Up Order before allowing the inmate to be picked up. Verbal acceptance by our judge hearing the case will be written on the contact sheet.

If our county judge or the State Attorney's Office denies the Pick-Up Order, you must notify the requesting agency informing them of the denial and, if the out-of-county agency wants to talk with our judge or State Attorney's Office, provide them the point of contact.

Sheriff of Monroe County

[ALDF-2A-21] [CORE-2A-14]

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to complete a Medical Receiving Screening Form on all arrestees during the intake process.

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all Certified Personnel.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Intake/Release Deputies.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

A Medical Receiving Screening and Mental Health Screening Form shall be completed by Medical Personnel on every inmate being admitted into the Monroe County Detention Facilities. This includes weekenders, juveniles, Federal/State, and contract inmates.

When Medical Personnel are not available in the Marathon and Plantation Key (KV/PK) Facilities to conduct the Medical Receiving Screening Form, a trained KV/PK Intake/Release Deputy shall complete this form. Medical Personnel are on duty in the Key West (KW) facility at all times.

NOTE: KV/PK Deputies completing this screening form will receive training from Medical Personnel on the form and screening process prior to conducting any medical screens.

This form will be completed at the time of admission (i.e., after the pat search and before putting the individual into a holding cell) along with ensuring that the arresting deputy has completed the Arresting Officer's Assessment Form. This form provides the Medical Division with initial information on each inmate who may have a pre-existing medical condition that requires daily medication. It is important that this information be as accurate as possible.

The following questions will be asked by the Nurse or KV/PK Intake/Release Deputy and the answers shall be PRINTED on the form. Any answer with a "Yes" requires an explanation. The following fields are mandatory:

Name (Last, First, M.I.)

Date (Current)

Time (military time)

Inmate Identification (I.D.) Number (Physical Descriptor Number)/MNI number

Inmate Questionnaire

Medical Personnel or the KV/PK Intake/Release Deputy will ask the inmate approximately 19 questions plus complete the Mental Health Intake Screen. The inmate will respond with Yes or No. If yes is indicated, an explanation will be required.

The inmate will not be disciplined for not answering questions related to: [BOC 8:031]

Inmate has a mental, physical, or developmental disability

Inmate is or is perceived to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, or gender non-conforming

Inmate has previously experienced sexual victimization

Inmate’s own perception of vulnerability

Disorderly or Belligerent Inmates

If an inmate is disorderly or belligerent and it is impossible to process him/her, a Medical Receiving Screening Form still needs to be filled out with whatever information we do have on the

inmate. This would include name, sex, inmate I.D. #, date Medical Receiving Screening Form was filled out, and any other area which can be filled in from observation and not by verbally asking the inmate. Some areas such as D.O.B. and home address can sometimes be obtained from the arrest affidavit or the computer if the subject has been arrested previously.

If the inmate is disorderly or belligerent, this fact would be noted under DOES INMATE APPEAR

TO BE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF, OR WITHDRAWING FROM, DRUGS OR ALCOHOL? If the answer is yes, you should indicate what type of influence according to the affidavit, if available. Medical Personnel or the KV/PK Intake/Release Deputy will notify the Intake/Release Sergeant for possible monitoring of the inmate.

Inmates will not be assigned a top bunk while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Suicidal or Medical Emergencies

If any inmate in KV/PK is a suicidal risk or showing visible signs of illness, injury, minor bleeding, pain, or other symptoms suggesting the need for immediate medical attention, the KV/PK Sergeant shall refer the new intake to the local ER for clearance.

NOTE: Seriously ill or seriously injured arrestees (i.e., unconscious or cannot stand without assistance, excessive use of alcohol, excessive use of drugs, bleeding, or other major medical problem) should be rejected in the middle and upper Keys. In Key West, the intake will be evaluated by Medical Personnel who will make the referral to the local ER for management or medical clearance. The Intake/Release Sergeant may have Medical Personnel assist him/her in making the final decision to accept or reject the arrestee. If the arrestee was rejected, a written medical treatment form by a hospital must be submitted before the arrestee will be accepted into the facility.

Finalizing the Screening Form

After all questions have been covered, Medical Personnel or the KV/PK Intake/Release Deputy

Bonds

Surety bonds consist of two parts - the bond itself and the power.

Bonds may differ in size and color from company to company. The bond will usually be the larger of the two documents, and contains information such as the defendant’s name, charge, power number, arrest number, date, amount of bond, race, sex, date of birth, court date, and division.

When checking the bond, make certain that the returnable county is listed on the bond whether it is Monroe County or another county.

At the bottom of the bond there are spaces for signatures.

One is for the Sheriff's signature and/or authorized agent, and the other is for the Records Supervisor/designee's / KV/PK I/R Deputy's signature.

The space labeled "Principal" is for the defendant's signature. The defendant must sign his or her name in full as it appears on the bond.

One space is for the bondsman's signature.

If a mistake is made on the bond, the bondsman may correct the mistake. The surety bond must contain the bondsman’s seal.

Expiration Date

On different types of bonds there are expiration dates. Make sure that if there is an expiration date that it is valid/current.

Bond Power (Amount Limitation)

The power will usually be the smaller portion of the surety bond. The top of the power will be labeled "Not to Exceed the Amount of _______."

“Stacking of Bonds” Prohibited

A bondsman cannot write a bond for an amount that exceeds the amount shown at the top of the power, and cannot write two powers for the same charge since the bond may exceed the power amount. This is known as "stacking of bonds."

Splitting Bond Amount

It is permissible for two different bondsmen to split the amount of the bond and each of them submits a bond and a power.

Bond Power

The power contains information such as the defendant’s name, charge, date, bondsman's signature, etc.

Bond Power Error or Mistakes

If a mistake is made on the power, it cannot be corrected, and the bondsman must write another one.

Some bondsmen will place a seal on the power, but it is not mandatory.

If there is a space on the power for the court, make certain that the correct county is listed.

Bond Copies

Surety bonds for Monroe County charges can be accepted if the individual is in custody in another county.

Verify the charges prior to accepting the bond.

Indicate signature not available on the bond, and send a teletype to the holding county stating that a bond has been posted for the Monroe County charge.

The following items should be checked for every bond received:

Case Number

Date

Power Number

OUT-OF-COUNTY BOND

A person who is in a Monroe County Detention Facility on charges from another county can usually bond out on those charges as if they were Monroe County charges.

Notify the other county via teletype that the person is in custody and ask the authorized detaining authority if the person may post bond.

When the bond is written, it must state that the court is in another county.

The bond must indicate the other county, and the power must indicate the County Seat (City).

NOTE: Before a defendant is released from the Monroe County Detention Facilities, an up-to-date FCIC/NCIC/QW will be completed to insure no additional active warrants on the inmate.

PROPERTY BONDS

Property bonds will only be accepted by the authorization of the Sheriff's Attorney.

If all paperwork is in order, a memorandum from the Sheriff's Attorney will authorize the release.

SUPERSEDEAS BONDS

A Supersedeas Bond is an order from the committing judge which supersedes a sentence and allows the defendant to be released from jail.

The bond is usually allowed pending motions for mitigation of sentence. The order will remain in the Records Division until the subject returns to jail.

The bondsman must go to the Clerk of the Courts to write the bond for the defendant.

The Clerk of the Courts will ensure original bond is delivered to the Monroe County Detention Facilities Records Division that authorizes the release of the defendant.

Clerk of the Court Approval and Presence

Under no circumstances will bondsmen submit supersedeas bond without the approval and presence of the Clerk of Court.

Supersedeas Bonds will be completed Monday- Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. by the Clerk of the Courts.

Marathon/Plantation Key (KV/PK): Attempt to complete the Medical Screening Form. If the Marchman Detainee won't cooperate, proceed to the next step. If needed, contact the KW Medical Division.

The alcohol level or refusal shall be documented on the bottom of the Marchman Act Form.

incapable of appreciating his or her need for such services and of making a rational decision in regard thereto.

NOTE: A Marchman Detainee will not be automatically rejected solely on the basis of a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.30% or higher. Medical personnel and the Intake Sergeant will determine if we, as the service provider, can safely manage the medical

condition(s) or behavioral problem(s) of the Marchman Detainee (F.S.S. 397.6751).

Only a law enforcement deputy can request involuntary admission into a detention center. A licensed physician does not have the authority, by Florida State Statutes, to order an involuntary admission into a detention facility.

NOTE: The physician can order an involuntary admission into a hospital or detoxification facility, but not a detention facility.

A person meets the criteria for involuntary admission if there is good faith reason to believe the person is substance abuse impaired and, because of such impairment, has lost the power of self-control with respect to substance use; and either

o Has inflicted, or threatened or attempted to inflict, or unless admitted is likely to inflict, physical harm on himself or herself or another; or

oIs in need of substance abuse services and, by reason of substance abuse impairment, his or her judgment has been so impaired that the person is

However, mere refusal to receive such services does not constitute evidence of lack of judgment with respect to his or her need for such services.

The law enforcement deputy must give due consideration to the expressed wishes of the Marchman Detainee. For example, a Marchman Detainee tells the law enforcement deputy that he or she is staying at a local hotel and would like to be taken to his or her hotel room. Taking the Marchman Detainee to his or her hotel room would be acceptable, and more appropriate, in lieu of an involuntary admission into the jail.

The final decision to accept or reject the Marchman Detainee will be made by the Intake Sergeant/officer-in-charge after consulting with the medical staff.

If a Marchman Detainee is rejected

due to medical reasons, the Detaining/Transporting Deputy shall transport the Marchman Detainee to the hospital’s emergency room. The Marchman Detainee will remain at the hospital until such time as the attending physician determines that the Marchman Detainee is medically cleared. Once medically cleared, the Detaining/Transporting Deputy may return the Marchman Detainee to the detention facility along with written documentation indicating that the Marchman Detainee is medically cleared. The Intake Sergeant and the jail’s medical staff will review the hospital’s paperwork and the physical/mental condition of the Marchman Detainee to determine if the Marchman Detainee will be accepted.

If we, as the service provider, cannot safely manage the medical condition(s) or behavioral problem(s) of the Marchman Detainee, we will discharge the Marchman Detainee and refer him/her to a more appropriate setting for care (F.S.S. 397.6751)

Again, the final decision to accept or reject the Marchman Detainee will be made by the Intake Sergeant/officer-in-charge after consulting with the medical staff.

Forms

The following forms / photographs are required to process an involuntary admission into the detention center:

Marchman Act: Non-Criminal Detention

Detaining Deputy’s Assessment of Marchman Detainee

Report of Law Enforcement Deputy Initiating Protective Custody

Property Receipt

Medical Assessment Form

Special Confinement Sheet and Watch Form

Two (2) photographs

Transporting Deputy’s Forms to Complete

The Transporting Deputy must complete the following forms before a Marchman Detainee will be considered for involuntary admission into the detention center:

Marchman Act: Non-Criminal Detention

The form must be accurately and fully completed. Carefully check the following areas that have been identified as commonly made mistakes.

oThe detaining agency MUST be a law enforcement agency. It can NOT be a physician or the hospital

oThe law enforcement deputy must notify the nearest relative of an adult Marchman Detainee unless the Marchman Detainee requests that there be no notification (F.S.S. 397.6772).

oDetention intake personnel will ask the adult Marchman Detainee if he or she wants a relative contacted. If the adult Marchman Detainee indicates that they do want a relative contacted, detention intake personnel will circle “yes” on the

“Marchman Act, Non-Criminal Detention” form and tell the law enforcement deputy that the Marchman Detainee wants his or her relative contacted. Detention intake personnel will write the time they notified the law enforcement deputy and their initials to the right of the request for contact.

oDetention personnel are required to notify the nearest service provider (in our case the Guidance Clinic) within the first 8 hours of the detention.

The Intake Sergeant or officer-in-charge will call the Guidance Clinic at 434-9028 and give them the name and date of birth of every Marchman Detainee brought to the jail. The notification must be noted on the form.

Detaining Deputy’s Assessment of Marchman Detainee

oAny “yes” response requires a written

explanation from the Detaining/Transporting Deputy in the space provided

oDetention personnel shall not sign the form until the Marchman Detainee has been accepted into the detention facility for involuntary admission.
