To Whom it may Concern,

I received the FOIA request regarding communications and expenditures for
our equipment. I will have to forward the request to Alice Wallis, 911
Coordinator and OEM to retrieve that information as well as any materials
associated with it. It will take more than three days to track down this
information. If you would like, Mrs. Wallis can be reached at 501-889-3228.
She may be able to get the information much more quickly. I will also get
with the Sheriff's Administrative Assistant, Christina Wilson, to see what
information she may have on this. Mrs. Wilson is due back to work on
Monday August 12th.

Your patience in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Dear Sir or Madam,

This is my second email in response to the request that was faxed to the
Perry County Detention Center in Perryville Arkansas. I need to know
exactly what communications services you are referring to. Is it our
dispatch, officers, or the Sheriff's Office itself? We use various
companies for our radios, internet, phone lines (land and cell). Please use
this email and the information provided at the bottom of this email for
responses. Please provide me with the information on which services of
communication you are inquiring so that I may process and fulfill your
request.

Thank you,

Billie McCormick

Hi there,

Thank you so much for the question. I'm primarily interested in the phone/video visitation/communication services available for inmate use; you needn't provide materials related to employee radios or the like. If further clarification is necessary, please let me know, and I can plan to give your office a call.

Best wishes,
Beryl

From: Perry County Sheriff's Office

At this time, we do not have any video communications for our inmates. They have access to a phone system in each pod and that service is provided by Correct Solutions and time for phone use is purchased through KIOSK located in the booking area of the detention center. I will pull the info for that system as soon as possible and get it to you.

Thank you for the clarification on this matter.

Mr. Lipton,

Attached is what I could find from this office concerning communications
and equipment for the Perry County Sherriff's Office. For any further
contracts, you may need to check with Perry County Clerk / Circuit Clerk
Persundra Hood at 501-889-5126 and/or the County Treasurer Jan Moore at
501-889-2710. Our landlines are through Windstream and I could not find any
kind of contracts with them, our Internet is through both AT&T and The

know.
