PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to establish policies governing inmates housed in administrative confinement or protective custody.

Inmates shall be placed in administrative confinement for purposes of protective custody only when there is documentation that protective custody is warranted and no reasonable alternatives are available.

The Classification Committee shall meet once per week to review the status of each inmate in administrative confinement or protective custody to determine when an inmate should be released from confinement.

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all Certified Deputies.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Classification Supervisor and Shift Supervisors.

DEFINITIONS:

Administrative Confinement - Placement of an inmate in housing separate from the general population when ordered by the Classification Division or other authorized persons. Administrative Confinement may occur when the continued presence of an inmate in the general population would pose a serious threat to property, self, staff, other inmates, or to the security or orderly operation of the facility.

Protective Custody - A form of administrative confinement for inmates requesting or requiring protection from other inmates for reasons of health or safety (e.g., informant, state witness, ex-law enforcement deputy).

Immediate Control and Supervision - It is determined that the inmates constitute a threat to themselves, to others, or to the safety and security of the detention facility.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Inmates under administrative confinement and protective custody will be placed in confinement units in order to properly and safely supervise them.

Inmates in administrative confinement and/or protective custody shall be checked daily by the Medical Staff. [ALDF-2A-45]

Inmates in administrative confinement or protective custody shall be required to shower twice weekly.

All inmates placed in administrative confinement or protective custody shall be afforded the same basic rights, privileges, services, and

participation in facility programs. These programs must be comparable to those available to the general population within the limits of their imposed confinement unless security requirements dictate otherwise. (See "Confinement Inmates; Rights, Privileges, and Access to Programs and Services" written directive for a detailed listing.) [FCAC 7.18]

Anytime an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Detainee stays in administrative confinement more than 30 days, Classification shall inform the Operations Commander. The Operations Commander/ designee shall then notify the ICE officer-in- charge.

Protective Custody Justification

Inmates that require protection from other inmates (e.g., informant, ex-law enforcement deputy, state witness) may be placed in immediate protective custody by the

Operations/Site Commander, Shift Lieutenant/Sergeant, Unit/Dorm Deputy, or the Classification Division when deemed necessary.

Inmates may request in writing to be placed in protective custody for protection from other inmates or for other personal reasons.

The Classification Division will then evaluate the inmate’s request for possible alternatives.

Inmates who were placed in protective custody at their own request, and who later request to be placed back in general population, will remain in protective custody if the Classification Division determines that the original reason for protective custody still exists.

NOTE: Inmates shall be placed in protective custody only when there is documentation that protective custody is warranted and no reasonable alternatives are available. [ALDF- 2A-46]

An Incident Report must be forwarded to the Inmate Services Sergeant via the chain-of- command for all of the above reasons. A copy of the Incident Report will be forwarded to the Classification Division.

Administrative Confinement Justification [FCAC 7.17]

The Operations/Site Commander, Shift Lieutenant/ Sergeant, Unit/Dorm Deputy, or the Classification Division may order immediate administrative confinement when it is necessary to protect the inmate or others, or when the inmate: [ALDF-2A-44] [CORE-2A-21]

Exhibits anti-social or hostile behavior toward others

Is a demonstrated escape risk

Is pending an investigation or hearing for a rule violation

Is a death row inmate temporarily housed at a county facility

Is an informant, state witness, present or ex- law enforcement officer, correction officer, probation officer, assistant state attorney, assistant public defender, etc.

Inmates may be placed in administrative confinement for the purpose of ensuring immediate control and supervision when it is determined they constitute a threat to themselves, to others, or to the safety and security of the detention facility.

Each such action shall be followed by a Disciplinary Report and formal disciplinary proceedings if applicable.

NOTE: An Incident Report must be forwarded to the Inmate Services Sergeant via the chain-of-command for all of the above reasons. A copy of the Incident Report will be forwarded to the Classification Division.

Each case shall be reviewed within 72 hours by

aLieutenant. [ALDF-2A-44] [CORE-2A-21] The review shall include an interview with the ICE Detainee to determine if segregation is still warranted. A written record shall be made of the decision and sent to the Classification Division. The detainee shall be given a copy of the decision. [PBNDS 2.12]

A Lieutenant shall conduct an identical review every seven days that an ICE Detainee remains in administrative segregation for the first 30 days and every 10 days thereafter. A copy will be given to the detainee. [PBNDS 2.12]

Administrative Confinement and Protective Custody Status Review

The Classification Committee is comprised of, at a minimum, the Classification Supervisor, the Operations Commander/designee, and a representative of the Medical Staff.

The committee shall meet weekly to review all matters relating to an inmate's/detainees initial placement in confinement to determine if:

The committee shall meet weekly to review all matters relating to the status of an inmate's/detainees initial placement in administrative confinement or protective custody to determine if: [ALDF-2A-48]

The reason for initial placement is still valid

A change in the inmate's/detainees behavior and mental attitude warrants release from confinement

A change in the inmate's/detainees medical evaluation no longer warrants confinement

The Classification Committee will also review the inmate's file for:

Any Incident or Disciplinary Reports submitted since the inmate's/detainees placement in confinement

Any pertinent information supplied by staff members

Letters or request slips submitted by the inmate/detainee

The Operations Commander will be responsible for setting the actual time for the committee to meet.

After an ICE Detainee has been in segregation for seven consecutive days, the ICE Detainee has the right to appeal the decisions regarding their confinement status to the Operations Commander.

An ICE Detainee who has been segregated from the general population for more than 30 days may write an inmate request to the Operations Commander objecting to the administrative confinement.

The Operations Commander must review the request and send a written decision to the ICE Detainee with a copy maintained in his or her Classification Folder.

Administrative Confinement and Protective Custody Review Process for Release

Before inmates are released from confinement, a full review of the inmate's file shall be conducted by the Classification Committee to determine if the aforementioned factors warrant the inmate's release from confinement. [ALDF- 2A-49]

Should it be determined that the initial reasons for placement in confinement no longer exist, the Classification Committee shall recommend the inmate's return to general population.

All releases from confinement shall be documented to include dates, times, reasons for releases, and the releasing authorities. [FCAC 7.17]

When the Lieutenant (reviewing authority) concludes that the ICE Detainee should be removed from administrative segregation, he/she shall submit that recommendation to the Operations Commander/designee in writing for approval. The detainee shall be given a copy of the decision. [PBNDS 2.12]

Sheriff of Monroe County

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to establish policies governing inmates housed in disciplinary confinement. Inmates shall be placed in disciplinary confinement for a rule violation only after a hearing by the Inmate Disciplinary Committee. [ALDF-2A-47]

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all Certified Personnel.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Classification Supervisor and Shift Supervisors.

DEFINITIONS:

Disciplinary Confinement - A form of separation from the general population in which inmates committing serious violations of conduct regulations are confined by the Inmate Disciplinary Committee/Hearing Deputy for short periods of time to individual cells separate from

the general population. Placement in disciplinary confinement may only occur after a finding of a rule violation at an impartial hearing and when there is no adequate alternative disposition to regulate the inmate's behavior. [CORE-3A-01]

Pending Disciplinary Hearing - An inmate(s) who violated a rule infraction and is placed in a confinement cell pending his or her disciplinary hearing outcome.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Confinement unit(s) will be provided for the supervision of inmates under disciplinary confinement.

The Inmate Disciplinary Committee/Hearing Deputy may place inmates in disciplinary confinement only after an impartial hearing has been conducted and when other available alternatives are inadequate to regulate an inmate's behavior within acceptable limits.

If an inmate pleads guilty when they are served with the Disciplinary Report (DR), their lockdown time will begin that date.

If an inmate is found guilty at a DR hearing, their lockdown time will begin on the day of the DR hearing.

Inmates may be placed in disciplinary confinement for no more than the Disciplinary Confinement (DC) Guidelines allow per violation arising out of one incident. Lockdown time can run consecutively.

Disciplinary confinement time will only count

while in lockdown in Unit A, B, or other recognized lockdown cell. If an inmate goes to the infirmary for any reason, the time he or she spends in the infirmary will not count towards his or her lockdown time. Once the inmate is released from the infirmary, he or she will be returned to Unit A or B to complete his or her DC time. If the DR hearing is held in the infirmary, the DC time will not start until the inmate is released from the infirmary and placed back in Unit A or B on lockdown status. DC time will also be stopped for any other type of time the inmate spent away from Unit A or B.

Loss of privileges will be determined by the

Inmate Disciplinary Committee/Hearing Deputy.

NOTE: An Incident Report must be forwarded to the Inmate Services Sergeant via the chain-of-command for all of the above reasons.

Inmates shall be checked daily by Medical Staff. [ALDF-2A-45]

Inmates shall be required to shower twice weekly.

The Classification Supervisor shall conduct a review, to include an interview, every 7 days of any ICE Detainee that is placed under Disciplinary Segregation to determine if segregation is warranted. A written record shall be made of the decision and placed in the detainee’s file. The detainee shall be given a copy of the decision. [PBNDS 2.12]

Note: For ICE Detainees after the first 30 days of disciplinary segregation, and each 30 days thereafter, the Operations Commander shall review the detainee’s status to determine if disciplinary segregation is warranted. The Operations Commander will send a written justification for the continued segregation to the Field Office Director.

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to establish the responsibility and duties for the Inmate Services Division to conduct disciplinary hearings for inmates who have violated institutional rules or regulations. [FCAC 11.03]

Consistent, equitable discipline prevents misconduct and promotes a calm, orderly environment. At the same time it can be an effective tool used to develop inmate self- control.

Discipline shall not be arbitrary or capricious, or in a nature of retaliation or revenge.

Corporal punishment of any kind is prohibited. [FCAC 11.12]

Classification Personnel.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Disciplinary Committee [FCAC 11.03] [ALDF- 6C-11] [CORE-6C-03]

The Disciplinary Committee will consist of three Sheriff's Office personnel with at least one

certified deputy whenever possible. The certified deputy shall act as the chairperson of the committee. If no certified deputy is available, three Sheriff's Office personnel may convene the committee with one acting as the chairperson.

No personnel shall be a member of the disciplinary committee if they:

were involved or witnessed the infraction;

SCOPE:

This directive applies to the Disciplinary Committee/Hearing Deputy, Classification, and the Operations Commander.

working days after the incident. For the purpose of this rule, "working days" shall mean Monday- Friday, excluding holidays. [FCAC 11.06b] [ALDF-6C-09]

There may be times, due to extenuating circumstances (e.g., hurricane), when the hearing cannot be held within five working days of the incident. [FCAC 11.06b]

If this occurs, the circumstances regarding the postponement or continuance must be fully documented and approved by the officer-in- charge.

Under no circumstance may the hearing be postponed beyond ten working days after the incident. [FCAC 11.06b]

Chairperson’s Responsibility

When the inmate charged with the violation(s) appears before the committee, the chairperson will:

Introduce the committee

Determine if the inmate understands the charge(s), the hearing procedure, and the possible penalties if found in violation of the charge. [FCAC 11.06c]

Offer assistance to the inmate if he or she is unable to defend himself or herself due to disability, language barrier, literacy problems, or cannot properly understand the charge(s) against him/her. [FCAC 11.06d] [ALDF-6C-13]

Read the report aloud for the benefit of all present.

Ask the inmate how he or she wishes to plead to the charge(s):

o A plea of "Guilty" will not require any further evidence to be heard.

o A plea of "Not Guilty" will require the hearing to proceed.

o A refusal to plea shall be treated as a "Not Guilty" plea.

oA plea of "Nolo Contendere" shall be treated as a "Guilty" plea.

Ask the inmate if he or she would like to explain the circumstances or make a statement. [ALDF-6C-12]

Continue the hearing to resolve questionable testimony, if necessary.

Call for supporting documents, evidence, or relevant witnesses, if indicated. [FCAC 11.07] [ALDF-6C-12]

Inmates are allowed to be present at their disciplinary hearing unless a written waiver is obtained waiving their right to attend, the inmate refuses, security is threatened, or their behavior justifies their removal from the hearing (e.g., violent, aggressive, abusive language). Proceed with the hearing in the inmate's absence. [FCAC 11.08] [ALDF-6C- 08] [CORE-6C-04]

Ensure that any deviations from the established format are documented (e.g., removal, absence, or exclusion of inmate from hearing, interpreter present). [FCAC 11.08] [ALDF-6C-08] [CORE-6C-04]

If the inmate requested witnesses during the investigation and they were not called by the chairperson, or if information or evidence was restricted, an explanation must be included in the findings. [FCAC 11.07] [ALDF-6C-12]

When all questions are resolved, the inmate charged with the violation(s) and all others will be dismissed to allow the committee members an opportunity to deliberate.

The committee must determine if the inmate is or is not in violation of the Rules of Prohibited Conduct as charged and agree upon the recommended penalty.

The decision of guilt shall be based solely on witnesses, evidence (including video tape), and documentation, including staff reports, presented at the hearing with a statement to that effect made part of the official hearing record. [FCAC 11.10] [ALDF-6C-14 and 6C-15]

The penalty will not exceed the Disciplinary Committee (D.C.) Guidelines (see attachment 1).

All committee members must use the D.C. Guidelines as the sentence for an inmate found guilty of a charge.

As warranted, recommendations will be made to the Operations Commander requesting consideration of a reduced sentence based on the individual circumstances of the case.

Only the Operations Commander can reduce a sentence below the guidelines’ sentence.

If property was damaged, stolen, or destroyed, the Disciplinary Committee/ Hearing Deputy can also recommend reimbursement from the inmate as part of the sentencing. This recommendation must be spelled out including the dollar amount the inmate needs to reimburse.

Inmates shall not be sentenced to the following sanctions due to disciplinary reasons:

o Corporal punishment [FCAC 11.12] o Deviations from normal food service o Clothing deprivation

o Bedding deprivation

o Denial of personal hygiene items

o Loss of correspondence privileges, or

o Deprivation of the inmate’s minimum three hours per week of outdoor exercise.

Disciplinary Committee Findings [ALDF-6C- 15]

In stating the findings, the committee must specify the evidence, witnesses, and documentation they relied upon in reaching a

decision. [FCAC 11.10]

The findings will be recorded in Section III of the Disciplinary Report. [FCAC 11.06e]

“Not Guilty” Finding

If the inmate is found "not guilty", or if the charge is dismissed, all reports shall be so noted.

“Guilty” Finding [ALDF-3A-01] [CORE-3A-01]

There is a sanctioning schedule (i.e., D.C. Guidelines) for rule violations. The maximum sanction for rule violations is no more than 30 days of lockdown for all violations arising out of one incident. Continuous confinement for more than 30 days requires the review and approval of the facility administrator or designee. [ALDF- 2A-50]

The committee will sentence the inmate to the loss of the following as per the D.C. Guidelines:

Days of lockdown

Days of gain time

Days of visitation including additional loss to be completed after initial lockdown time

NOTE: ICE Detainees shall retain visiting privileges while in Special Management (Disciplinary Confinement) and once released back into general population.

[PBNDS 2008, 2.12]

If a loss of gain time is recommended per the D.C. Guidelines, the number of days to be forfeited will be noted and the expiration of sentence date adjusted on all records.

While in disciplinary confinement, the inmates lose the following privileges:

Phone (except to access legal counsel and for family emergencies as determined by the facility administrator or designee) [ALDF- 2A-65]

Law Library (except for pro se inmates)

Canteen

Sheriff of Monroe County

[ALDF-3A-02] [CORE-3A-01]

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to establish the methods to be used when it is necessary to take disciplinary action against inmates who have violated institutional rules and regulations.

SCOPE:

This directive applies to all personnel.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

All personnel.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

Reporting Violation of Rules

If a deputy or employee witnesses or has reason to believe a violation of the rules has been committed by an inmate, and if the deputy/employee determines that the violation can be disposed of without a formal Disciplinary Report, the deputy/employee will take the necessary steps to resolve the issue.

The deputy/employee may reprimand the inmate through verbal counseling or by issuing a Minor Infraction Warning.

Minor Infraction Warnings will be documented in the inmate's file.

If a rule violation requires formal resolution because the deputy/employee cannot resolve the issue through verbal counseling or by the issuance of a Minor Infraction Warning, the deputy/employee will follow through with a written Disciplinary Report and forward it to his or her supervisor for review. [ALDF-6C-03] [CORE-6C-02]

All inmates who are charged with a rule violation will be placed on PDR (i.e., pre-disciplinary report hearing confinement). [ALDF-6C-06]

Criminal Offenses [ALDF-3A-02]

If the rule violation is also a criminal offense, the deputy/employee will still follow through with a written Disciplinary Report.

The Shift Sergeant or Shift Lieutenant will make the decision on pursuing outside charge(s) in addition to the Disciplinary Report.

Sheriff of Monroe County

[PBNDS 2011 Section 3.1]

 

 

PURPOSE:

The purpose of this directive is to establish policy for the Monroe County Detention Facilities to establish and promote a safe and orderly living environment for detainees by establishing a fair and equitable disciplinary system, requiring detainees to comply with facility rules and regulations, and imposing disciplinary sanctions to those who do not comply.

SCOPE:

This directive applies to the Disciplinary Committee/Hearing Deputy, Classification, and the Operations Commander.

PERSON RESPONSIBLE:

Disciplinary Committee/Hearing Deputy and Classification Personnel.

POLICY AND PROCEDURES:

The expected outcomes of this detention standard are as follows:

Detainees shall be informed of facility rules and regulations, prohibited acts, disciplinary sanctions that may be imposed, their rights

in the disciplinary system and the procedure for appealing disciplinary findings.

The facility shall have graduated severity scales of prohibited acts and disciplinary consequences.

Where permitted by facility policy, staff shall informally settle minor transgressions through mutual consent, whenever possible.

Staff who have reason to suspect that a detainee has engaged in a prohibited act or who witness a prohibited act that cannot or should not be resolved informally, shall prepare a clear, concise and complete incident report.

Each Incident Report shall be objectively and impartially investigated and reported, ordinarily by a person of supervisory rank.

A serious incident that may constitute a criminal act shall be referred to the proper investigative agency as appropriate, and administrative investigations shall be suspended pending the outcome of that referral.

At each step of the disciplinary and appeal process, the detainee shall be advised in writing of his/her rights in a language he/she

understands, and translation or interpretation services shall be provided as needed.

If any staff at any stage of the disciplinary process has reason to believe that the detainee is mentally ill or mentally incompetent, the facility shall provide for an assessment by qualified medical personnel.

A Unit Disciplinary Committee (UDC) shall further investigate and adjudicate the incident and may impose minor sanctions or refer the matter to a higher level disciplinary panel.

An Institution Disciplinary Panel (IDP) shall conduct formal hearings on Incident Reports referred from UDCs and may impose higher level sanctions for “greatest” and “high” level prohibited acts.

Detainees before the IDP shall be afforded a staff representative, upon request, or automatically if the detainee is illiterate, has limited English language skills or otherwise needs special assistance.

Actions of the IDP shall be reviewed by the facility administrator, who may concur with the findings and sanctions or modify them.

At all steps in the disciplinary process, any sanctions imposed shall be commensurate with the severity of the committed prohibited act and intended to encourage the detainee to conform with rules and regulations in the future.

All steps of the disciplinary process shall be performed within the required time limits.

At all steps of the disciplinary process, accurate and complete records shall be maintained. The detainee shall receive copies of all reports, exhibits and other documents considered or generated in the hearing process, except insofar as the disclosure of such documents may pose an imminent threat to the safety, security and orderly conduct of the facility staff or other detainees, or if the document or other evidence is otherwise protected from disclosure.

If a detainee is found not guilty at any stage of the disciplinary process, the incident records shall not be placed or retained in the detainee’s file, even if these records are retained elsewhere for statistical or historical purposes.

Detainees shall be allowed to appeal disciplinary decisions through a formal grievance system. No staff member shall harass, discipline, punish or otherwise retaliate against any detainee for filing a complaint or grievance.

Detainees shall be afforded rights including, but not limited to, the following:

o the right to protection from abuse.

o the right to freedom from discrimination. o the right to pursue a grievance.

o the right to correspond with persons or organizations.

o the right to due process.

The applicable content and procedures shall be communicated to the detainee in a language or manner the detainee can understand.

All written materials provided to detainees shall generally be translated into Spanish. Where practicable, provisions for written translation shall be made for other significant segments of the population with limited English proficiency.

Oral interpretation or assistance shall be provided to any detainee who speaks another language in which written material has not been translated or who is illiterate.

Investigations

All Incident Reports are investigated within 24 hours of the incident.

The investigating officer must have supervisory rank or higher (unless prevented by personnel shortages) and shall have had no prior involvement in the incident, as either witness or officer at the scene. If an officer below

supervisory rank conducts the investigation, the shift supervisor shall review his/her report(s) for accuracy and completeness and sign them.

The investigating officer shall:

Commence the investigation within 24 hours of receipt of the Incident Report.

Advise the detainee of his/her right to remain silent at every stage of the disciplinary process, and ensure that he/she has a complete listing of detainee rights.

Provide the detainee a copy of the Incident Report and notice of charges at least 24 hours before the start of any disciplinary proceedings.

Terminate the administrative investigation, if the incident is under investigation on different grounds (i.e., the prohibited act is under criminal investigation), unless and until the agency with primary jurisdiction concludes its investigation or indicates it shall not pursue the matter.

Contraband that may be evidence in connection with a violation of a criminal statute shall be preserved, inventoried, controlled and stored so as to maintain and document the chain of custody. Contraband shall be reported to the appropriate law enforcement authority for action and possible seizure and prosecution.

Advise the detainee in writing of the detainee’s right, if applicable, to an initial hearing before the Unit Disciplinary Committee (UDC) within 24 hours of his/her notification of charges.

Record personal observances and other potentially material information.

Prepare a factual report of the investigation, including the location or disposition of any physical evidence.

Forward to the Unit Disciplinary Committee (UDC) all reports relevant to the disciplinary hearing—but do not provide a copy to the detainee at this stage of the disciplinary process, except for a copy of the Incident Report.

Unit Disciplinary Committee (UDC)

All facilities shall establish an intermediate level of investigation/adjudication process to adjudicate low or moderate infractions. They shall also ensure that the detainee is afforded all the UDC rights listed below.

The UDC administering unit discipline shall comprise up to three members, at least one of whom is a supervisor. The UDC shall not include the reporting officer, the investigating officer, or an officer who witnessed or was directly involved in the incident, except in the unlikely event that every available officer witnessed or was directly involved in the incident.

The UDC shall conduct hearings and, to the best extent possible, shall informally resolve cases involving high moderate or low moderate charges in accordance with the list of charges and related sanctions noted as “Appendix 3.1.A: Offense Categories.” Unresolved cases and cases involving serious charges are forwarded to the institution disciplinary panel.

The UDC shall have authority to:

Conduct hearings and resolve incidents involving high moderate or low moderate charges.

Consider written reports, statements and physical evidence.

Hear pleadings on the part of the detainee.

Make findings that a detainee did or did not commit the rule violation(s) or prohibited act(s) as charged, based on the preponderance of evidence.

Impose minor sanctions “E” through “M” in accordance with the table of prohibited acts and associated sanctions later in this document.

The detainee in UDC proceedings shall have the right to:

oWaiving the right to appear.

oHaving a UDC hearing within 24 hours after the conclusion of the investigation.

If security considerations prevent detainee attendance, the committee must document the security considerations and, to the extent possible, facilitate the detainee’s participation in the process via telephonic testimony, document submission, written statements or questions to be asked of witnesses;

Present statements and evidence, including witness testimony on his/her own behalf.

Appeal the committee’s determination through the detainee grievance process.

The UDC shall:

Advise the detainee of his/her rights at the hearing;

Refer to the IDP any incident involving a serious violation associated with an A- through-D-range sanction. This includes code violations in the “greatest” and “high” categories (100s and 200s);

Serve the detainee with:

o A copy of the UDC decision which must contain the reason for the disposition and sanctions imposed.

o Written notification of charges and hearing before the IDP.

If the detainee’s case is being referred to the IDP, advise the detainee, in writing, of:

o The right to call witnesses and present evidence before the IDP.

o The right to a staff representative before the IDP.

Staff Representation for the IDP

The facility administrator shall upon the detainee’s request, assign a staff representative to help prepare a defense prior to the commencement of the IDP. This help shall be automatically provided for detainees who are illiterate, have limited English-language skills, or who are without means of collecting and presenting essential evidence. Detainees shall

also have the option of receiving assistance from another detainee of their selection rather than a staff representative, subject to approval from the facility administrator.

A staff representative must be a full-time employee.

Because of the potential conflict of interest, the facility administrator, members of the IDP and of the UDC initially involved in the case, eyewitnesses, the reporting and investigating officers and anyone else with a stake in the outcome shall not act as staff representative.

The detainee may select his/her staff representative, barring those identified in paragraph 2 above.

The IDP shall arrange for the presence of the staff representative selected by the detainee. If that staff member declines or is unavailable, the detainee may:

o Select a different representative.

o Wait for the unavailable staff member to become available (within a reasonable period).

o Proceed without a staff representative.

A staff member who declines to serve must state the reason on the staff representative form.

If several staff decline, the facility administrator shall assign one.

The staff representative shall be free to speak to witnesses and to present evidence on the detainee’s behalf, including evidence of any mitigating circumstances. The staff representative must act in good faith on behalf of the charged detainee, and interview witnesses and obtain documentary evidence as requested by the detainee or as otherwise reasonably seen as relevant to the defense of the charges or in mitigation of the charges.

The IDP shall allow the staff representative enough time to speak with the detainee and interview witnesses prior to commencement of the proceeding. The IDP may grant a request for extension of time if required for an adequate defense.

The IDP shall establish the reliability of information provided by a confidential source before considering it in the disciplinary proceedings.

The IDP may withhold the confidential source’s identity from the staff

representative. While the staff representative may challenge the substance of any confidential information the IDP discloses, he/she may not question its reliability (which is pre-established by the IDP).

In the event that a detainee cannot effectively present his/her own case, the facility administrator shall appoint a staff representative, even if not requested by the detainee.

Institution Disciplinary Panel

Only the disciplinary panel may place a detainee in disciplinary segregation.

The term “Institution Disciplinary Panel” or “IDP” refers either to a three-person panel appointed by the facility administrator, or a one-person disciplinary hearing officer, depending on the practice at the facility.

The panel may not include the reporting officer, the investigating officer, any member of the referring UDC, or anyone who witnessed or was directly involved in the incident. Exceptions may occur only if the number of officers required for the panel cannot be filled due their direct involvement in the incident.

The IDP shall have authority to:

Conduct hearings on all charges and allegations referred by the UDC.

Call witnesses to testify;

Consider written reports, statements, physical evidence and oral testimony.

Hear pleadings by detainee and staff representative.

Make findings that the detainee did or did not commit the rule violation(s) or prohibited act(s) as charged, based on the preponderance of evidence.

Impose sanctions as listed and authorized in each category.

The detainee in IDP proceedings shall have the right to:

Remain silent at any stage of the disciplinary process.

Due process, which includes:

oAttending the entire hearing (excluding committee deliberations).

oWaiving the right to appear.

oHaving an IDP hearing within 24 hours after the conclusion of the investigation.

If security considerations prevent the detainee’s attendance, the committee must document the security considerations and, to the extent possible, facilitate the detainee’s participation in the process by telephonic testimony, the submission of documents, written statements or questions to be asked of witnesses;

Present statements and evidence, including witness testimony, on his/her behalf.

Appeal the committee’s determination through the detainee grievance process.

The IDP shall:

Verify that the detainee has been advised of and afforded his/her rights.

Remind the detainee of his/her right to a staff representative, provide one if requested and verify that a staff representative has been assigned when a representative is requested.

Advise the detainee of his/her right to waive the hearing and admit having committed the offense.

Conduct the hearing on the first business day after receiving the UDC referral, unless the detainee waives the 24-hour notification provision and requests an immediate hearing. In cases where a hearing is delayed, the reason(s) must be documented (e.g., a continuing investigation of facts, unavailability of one or more essential witnesses, etc.) and

approved by the facility

administrator. If the detainee is being held in segregation, the delay shall not exceed 72 hours, barring an emergency;

Prepare a written record of any hearing. This record must show that the detainee was advised of his/her rights. It must also document the evidence considered by the Panel and subsequent findings and the decision and sanctions imposed, along with a brief explanation.

Forward the entire record to the facility administrator, who may:

oConcur,

oTerminate the proceedings or

oImpose more severe or more lenient sanctions.

Serve the detainee with written notification of the decision, which must contain the reason for the decision.

Confidential Information

When a decision relies on information from a confidential source, the UDC or IDP shall disclose as much confidential information as may be disclosed without jeopardizing the safety and security of facility staff and other persons, and shall include in the hearing record the factual basis for finding the information reliable.

Postponement of Disciplinary Proceedings

All facilities shall permit hearing postponements or continuances under certain circumstances.

Circumstances justifying the postponement or continuance of a hearing might include, but are not limited to: defense preparation, physical or mental illness, security, escape, disciplinary transfer or pending criminal prosecution.

An uncooperative detainee may also cause a delay in the proceedings, either because of inappropriate behavior during the hearing process or a refusal to participate in a productive manner.
