To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Alabama Public Records , I hereby request the following records:
-Any informational and educational materials distributed in correctional facilities about housing options available to inmates post-release
-Any currently valid policies/procedures detailing Department reentry services specific to accessing housing options post-release
-Any statistical reports detailing admission and release trends from between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017
-Any statistical reports detailing recidivism data from between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017
-Any statistical reports regarding inmates' housing status prior to and following commitment to the Department from between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017
Please provide materials from all state correctional facilities and on a rolling basis, as they become available.
If you have any questions, please feel free to clarify via phone at 610-637-7745.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days.
You will need to follow the Department's procedure to request public records by completing the Public Records Request Form, which I have attached for your convenience, (the request form can be found on our website at http://www.doc.alabama.gov/ under request public records for future reference) and submit it along with a $25.00 processing fee. The processing fee payment must be submitted in the form of a cashier's check or money order made payable to the Alabama Department of Corrections.
Once we receive your completed request form and processing fee, we will review our records for documents responsive to your request. If we determine there are records responsive to your request, we will notify you of the estimated costs to produce the records. Payment of the estimated costs must be paid before we begin production of the records. Upon completion, we will provide you with an invoice of any final costs. No records will be made available until the final costs are paid.
The procedure to request public records, including our fee schedule, is further explained in the public records request form.
Please note that we do not produce documents electronically in connection with public records requests.
Let me know if you have any questions.
