The Inner Perimeter Security (I.P.S.) Team works under the umbrella of the Security Division.  I.P.S. works closely with the Sheriff’s Investigation Unit in the day-to-day operations that involve such matters as assaults, searches, breaches of security and gathering of intelligence.  An I.P.S. team is an integral part of any correctional facility and contribute to all levels of investigations.  The information and evidence they gather is not only important to criminal investigations but equally as important in being proactive and preventing incidents before they occur.
