Mr. Ziegler,
I contacted the county Contracts and Grants Office and they said you can find the RFP and signed contract on the county's web site at no charge.
The web site is www.jeffcomo.org
.  As far as the policy there is no policy.  As to the e-mails you need to contact Mr. West Yates ( (http://www.jeffcomo.org/) wyates@jeffcomo.org) for e-mail request. (mailto:wyates@jeffcomo.org)

Hi, Mr. Allen,

Thank you for your prompt response. I have searched the the county's website and cannot find any documents detailing the terms of the contract service between the county and Securus.

For example, I am looking for service policies (but not limited to) that outlined in a St. Louis Post-Dispatch story: http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/crime-and-courts/jefferson-county-jail-chooses-video-visits-over-face-time/article_31294601-cfdf-5442-b71a-4bb9698d6819.html

An excerpt of the story with policy examples: "Relatives and friends can schedule time to visit with inmates online, but each video session costs $6.99 per 25-minute visit. That’s an introductory fee that is expected to rise later this summer. Visitors who come to the jail also have to use the video system but won’t pay a fee. Inmates are allowed two 25-minute video visits per week from people who come to the jail but may have as many remote video sessions per week as they choose."

Whether it is a policy document or service agreement conditions of use, can you please advise me on where to find documents that detail any agreements between the county and Securus on how the service is to be used.

As to the request emails, I will direct my request to Mr. West Yates.

Thank you in advance for your response.

Sincerely,

Mike Ziegler
