From: Beryl Lipton

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the state open records law, Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. Secs. 39-121 to 39-122 and 39-128, I hereby request the following records:

All procedures and policies related to the handling of inmate grievances.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Beryl Lipton

Beryl,

ADC policy #802 (inmate grievance procedure) is available on our website for you to review.

I have attached a link to that specific policy for your convenience:

Hello Mr. Lamoreaux,

May I also get the Informal and Formal Grievance Procedures for the privately-owned facilities within Arizona?

Thank you so much!
Beryl

Beryl,

The grievance procedures should be the same for state facilities and contracted facilities. However, we would not have any information for private facilities that do not contract with ADC.
Regards,

Bill Lamoreaux
