From WTVO:

On June 2, 2020, there was an incident involving three disruptive detainees. Our corrections officers deployed Oleoresin Capsicum spray, which is commonly referred to as ‘pepper’ spray. The allegation that tear gas was deployed inside the facility, and that a detainee’s arm was broken are simply not true. Tear gas is not a tool utilized for de-escalation within the Winnebago County Jail.

“In an effort to improve the transparency and the accountability of all members of the Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Gary Caruana initiated the process of purchasing body worn cameras for both Corrections Officers and Law Enforcement Deputies in mid-2019. Through a cooperative process with the Winnebago County Board, those body worn cameras were purchased. As a result of those 2019 negotiations, all uniform Corrections Officers and all uniform Law Enforcement Deputies will wear body worn cameras while working.

“Corrections Officers perform a difficult but necessary job under stressful conditions and at times are forced to use their training to de-escalate situations. We review all incidents to ensure these situations are handled appropriately. There were no injuries to either inmates or to staff on June 2, 2020.

“We stand by our officers and maintain that these allegations of mistreatment are absolutely false.”
