From: Chris Gelardi

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

All releasable Board of Correction records -- including memoranda, letters, and emails -- related to footnote 4 in the Board of Correction's October 24, 2022, report, titled "Recent Trends in Lockdowns in New York City Department of Correction Facilities."

The footnote reads: "There is some indication that the Department may be underreporting the incidence of emergency lock-ins, despite DOC policy that requires lock-ins to be reported to the Department’s Central Operations Desk (COD). See NEW YORK CITY DEP’T OF CORRECTION, DIRECTIVE NO. 4009 R-C, LOCK-IN / LOCK-OUT (eff. date 10/2/20). For instance, during an unannounced visit to GRVC in June 2022, Board staff came upon a General Population (GP) housing unit that clearly was locked down. Correction officers assigned to that area explained to Board staff that the unit was on lockdown due to insufficient uniformed staffing. The next day, Board staff reviewed the Central Operations Desk (COD)-generated 24-Hour Report for the date of that visit and was unable to locate a report in connection with that lockdown."

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.

Sincerely,

Chris Gelardi
