FOR STATE AND JAIL INMATES

The DOJ Civil Rights Division enforces the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act, which authorizes the Attorney General to initiate suits against state or local officials who operate institutions in which a pattern or practice of flagrant or egregious conditions deprive residents of their constitutional rights. While this office collects information about specific incidents in order to determine whether there may be a pattern or practice that warrants investigation, they do not have authority to investigate or remedy individual complaints about a particular incident. The Special Litigation Section can only investigate institutions run by, or on behalf of, state and local governments. This means that the Civil Rights Division cannot investigate federal institutions (such as federal prisons or ICE detention centers).
