Tulsa County Sheriff's Office received two awards from the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement or ICE Wednesday morning during a ceremony at the county jail.  

The chief of ICE, Sean Stephens came to Tulsa from the Washington, D.C. to present the awards to Sheriff Stanley Glanz and his deputies.

"When they come and inspect the jail, they look at the entire facility - the food service, the medical, and everything," Glanz said.

Stephens said, "It's not common that you get a facility that gets two perfect inspections."

Stephens said the awards were the result of two years of successful inspections of the sheriff's office by ICE in which they found no deficiencies.

ICE has only given out about six of the awards nationwide.
