Pursuant to the Nevada Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

The following materials regarding the assessment, collection, and balances of inmate fees and debt:

• All policies and procedures regarding the goods, services, or any other expenses for which inmates are or may become liable. Please include all policies on the garnishment/disbursement of funds from inmate accounts and wages (such as those related to mandatory saving, mandatory deductions, coverage of care, personal necessities, etc.), as well as all relevant reporting requirements. Please include all relevant data as regards to medical payments, room and board costs, meal fees, stamps and postage, hygienic materials, and any other expenses for which inmates are or may become liable, etc.

• All reports, databases, spreadsheets, or equivalent materials regarding current debts/restitution paid to or owed to this department or any facility/agency under its jurisdiction. Please include all available segregable information (excluding individual personally-identifying elements, as necessary and appropriate), including but not limited to the reason for the debt/fee, the amount of the debt, the facility at which the debt was incurred, whether the debt is held by an inmate in custody or released, any available individual data regarding record of prior release, etc.

If further clarification is necessary, a phone call will happily be arranged.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

From: Brooke Keast

Attached are our policies and procedures in response to your records request. Also, we are held accountable by the Nevada Revised statute 209 which dictates how prisons are to be run in the state.

When it comes to the "reports, databases, spreadsheets or equivalent materials regarding current debts/restitution paid to or owed to this department or any facility/agency under it's jurisdiction." There are three different entities, the courts, NDOC and the state parole and probation division, that each play a piece in that equation. We have no blended database that can give you the information you are requesting. No such report exists. After discussion with inmate services and the chief of purchasing, I've been informed we do not have the capability to run the debt information solely, so if we ran a list of debts, you would have some personal information regarding the inmates included. I was also informed that any indigent inmates don't incur debt, we provide hygiene and necessities for them. Please let me know if I can assist in any further research for this request.

Hi Brooke,

Thanks so much for your help. I'm wondering: would it be possible to run the report and provide me only with the summation lines? I understand if it's not, but I'm hoping there's a way to get to some of the data without putting you through unnecessary redaction efforts.

Best,
Beryl

From: Brooke Keast

Thank you for the reminder -

I got the following numbers for you from Inmate services. For FY16 year-to-date $107,543.12 has been automatically collected from inmate payrolls to pay inmates' court-ordered obligations including, but not limited to, administrative assessments, victim-specific restitution, public defender fees, and psych evaluation fees.

This figure does not include initial payments for court-ordered obligations manually collected by the NDOC, payments initiated by inmates, or payments collected by courts from other entities such as Parole and Probation which we have no access to.

Hi Muckrock,
Here is a list of all the current inmates in our custody that have restitution owed or paid according to our records. This is in no way a complete list since the courts and other organizations may collect payments we don't know about. This list should complete this request.
