Can immigration ICE officer arrest someone who violates law and can be deported for the crime,or does cop have to arrest first?

Asked 7 months ago - Denver, CO

I have found out that the crimes committed by soon to be ex, we are still married, has committed turpitude crimes that can get him deported or called removed now. He has more than one turpitude crime,and at different times, so I was told by ICE he can be removed for the crimes.I am unsure if a police in a town has to arrest for the violation of DV restraining order,parental kidnapping over state lines,child endangerment; and then ICE picks up?My problem is I cannot get the local police to arrest him as they work with him and refuse to enforce the DVRO and out of state orders stating he kidnapped children under UCAPA;both good in 50 states but they will not enforce.Can I ask ICE to pick him up and also pick up the children?If they pick up and keep he can be gone in 60 days,if released 2 year

Additional information

He is legal with 10 year permanent resident, not a citizen. Also how can I get the Domesticc Violence restraining Order enforced as the chidren are protected on it as well from him. Can't go to the local jusge found out as well as he is CLOSE friend and stated will not give any orders against his friend,DA is his friend. This is small rural area in COlorado and no one abides by the laws apparently. Can I complain to someone about police coruption? Need to do soon, live in different state, I have custody in different state.
