To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Idaho Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
All lists of books and periodicals that are prohibited in Idaho prisons
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 3 business days, as the statute requires.
Good afternoon Alec. IDOC does not have a list of publications that are prohibited in IDOC facilities. Every publication is reviewed on a case by case basis. For example, if an offender has a subscription to a magazine and one month is contains something against policy, we would not allow just that month to come in. If you would like to review IDOC's mail room policy, you can follow this link and you can view it in its entirety. https://www.idoc.idaho.gov/content/policy/588
Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
