Suffolk County Jail

The Suffolk County Jail, often referred to as the "Suffolk County House of Correction," is a jail in South Boston which is under the management of the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department. Until 2019, the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department maintained an agreement with US Immigration and Customs (ICE), through which ICE used the Suffolk County Jail to cage migrants (predominantly Black and Brown) prior to their deportations. The Suffolk County Sheriff's Department ended this agreement with ICE in 2019, after which Suffolk County Sheriff Steven Tomkins has advocated that the jail's additional capacity be put to use for the caging of area residents who lack access to housing.
