Example text

The deputy followed the car. It was a small Toyota, and he could see several heads in the backseat, poking over a line of baseball caps arrayed on the back window ledge. He couldn’t stop the vehicle just on the suspicion of ferrying illegals; some other violation had to first present itself.

So we negotiated, and I didn’t make the deal until everybody agreed that the feds wouldn’t even think of trying to bigfoot all over our jails, and no fewer than 160 deputies went through the training. As of this writing, those 160 deputies have completed the ICE course. Not only is this an impressive percentage of my total force, it is fully one-half of all the local or state law enforcement officers cross-trained in the nation. Now, with the door wide open, I do not profess to understand why other agencies have not taken advantage of this tool.
