We are working on gathering the remaining information you requested but we will need more time to complete it due to technical difficulties.

From: Lassen County Sheriff's Department

Good afternoon,

My apologies, I gave you the wrong information. I have heard back from all departments and have been told that the only form of communication used in our Adult Detention Facility is telephone. There are no kiosks or mobile tablet services so the contract previously provided is all that we have to give you.

Thank you,

Good afternoon,

We're still working on your request. Unfortunately, we are a small agency and it takes time to pull together the information you requested. There are a couple of documents I'm still trying to track down from other departments.

Thank you,

The communications contract already provided to you is the only thing we have to give you. The only way that inmates communicate with people outside the institution is via telephone and so the contract provided completes your request.

Thank you,

Lisa Bernard
