Staff found guilty of such violations will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including immediate termination and possible criminal prosecution. Inmates will be subject to disciplinary action consistent with the requirements of the Sheriff Al Cannon Detention Center's inmate disciplinary procedures, and may be subject to criminal prosecution.
