CRCL conducted an onsite investigation into conditions of detention for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainees at the LaSalle Detention Facility in Jena, Louisiana. CRCL's review of the facility focused in large part on operations in the areas of suicide prevention; medical care; and conditions of confinement. On August 21, 2017, CRCL issued an initial expert recommendation memorandum for this facility. Following this, CRCL issued this supplemental expert recommendation memorandum (below), which focuses on findings regarding four detainee deaths that occurred at the facility between January 23, 2016 and March 13, 2017. CRCL received and reviewed the relevant documents related to these deaths after an onsite investigation concluded on March 17, 2017. Thus, these findings and recommendations were not included in the initial expert recommendations memorandum.
