To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
Procedures for the transfer of offenders to holding facilities
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. 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.
I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.
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 look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
Attached please find a letter regarding your public records request.
If you could, please confirm you received this email.

Hello Mr. Maccioli,
Thank you for your message. I am interested in obtaining the procedures followed for the transfer of offenders or accused offenders from their initial holding cell (at the sheriff's office, for example, for those arrested over the weekend and awaiting Monday morning arraignment) to the court house and transfers from the court house or sheriff's office to a correctional facility.
I hope this clarifies my request. Thank you so much for your help. I hope you had a lovely weekend!
