Pursuant to the Minnesota Data Practices Act, I hereby request the following documents:

All procedures and policies related to the handling of inmate grievances.

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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,

Beryl Lipton
