To whom it may concern.
Attached are files received from Securus per your request. Data requested by you is not something we keep here at the Sheriff's Office, other than the contract.
I have also enclosed a scan copy of the ONLY original request I received from you stamped with the date I received it. I note this because as I type this today I just received a second request from you for the same data, but your letter is suddenly dated May 24 instead of my original June 1st. I also note from the Boston postmark of June 2nd that your letter took 4 days to reach me. Not complaining, just pointing out the time it took for your letters to reach me so you understand my response by date.
Also, please do not reply to the email address used for this email. My normal County email is as follows:
I had to use this one as the County is switching servers this week.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
We consider this request complied with.

To whom it may concern
Today June 18th, 2018   I received a purported 3rd request for what appears to be the same information requested in a FIOA from you dated June 1st.  I have responded in the email attached below on June 12th with absolutely all of the information I have to give concerning your request.
Unless I am misunderstanding what you are requesting, or the attachments are not coming thru, I consider this matter closed. If there is a problem please contact me by phone at 2178266393    8-4 CST and we can discuss it and put this matter to rest. Note I will be out of the office June 19th all day.
Thank you John HammondJail Administrator Clark County, Il. Sheriff's Office
