To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to Alabama's Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:
• Any and all policies, procedures, directives, or associated materials regarding the transportation and extradition of prisoners under the jurisdiction of this agency. If such materials exist for both the transportation of prisoners within this agency's jurisdiction and transportation of prisoners to locations outside of this agency's jurisdiction and these materials differ, provision of all would be greatly appreciated.
• Any and all contracts—as well as all associated amendments, exhibits, memorandums, directives, or other such additional materials—intergovernmental services agreements, and any other agreements regarding the transportation (of any type and length) of prisoners in the custody of this agency.
• For any transportation provided by a company, agency, or other entity that is not this agency, please provide all invoices for services, as well as any and all agreements (including supplemental elements) under which such services were provided
Further clarification can be provided upon request.
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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.
You must 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 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 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 final costs to produce the records. Once final payment is received, we will mail the records to you. 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.
