Time in Prison Handbook

Alec Shea filed this request with the Department of Corrections of New Hampshire.


From: Alec Shea

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Hampshire "Access to Government Records and Meetings" Statute (RSA Ch. 91-A), I hereby request the following records:

The most recent edition of the "Time in Prison" handbook issued to inmates in addition to all written or video material that is given to incoming prisoners in New Hampshire prisons.

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.
