Collier County Sheriff’s Office: ICE partnership is paying 2 ways for local taxpayers

It always sounded good. It always made sense that federal law-enforcement agencies should share illegal immigration and other crime data with local agencies, and vice versa.

As soon as Collier County Sheriff Don Hunter brought to light after Sept. 11 that a huge gap existed, meaning that local deputies would not know they had arrested an illegal wanted by federal agents, who in turn would not know their target was in custody, we have supported his efforts to bring some sense to that.

Hunter has stayed the course — even bringing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials into the county jail.
