Re: PRA Request on Inmate telecommunication services.
Dear Beryl Lipton
On May 22, 2018, we received your Public Record Act request regarding Inmate telecommunication services via fax. You requested the information via email if possible. Attached you will find our current contract with Securus Technologies, Inc. and two pages showing the income on the invoices received from Securus Technologies.
If you require paper copies that are not digital of our Forty-Five invoices and claims, we charge the statutory fee of .50 cents per page plus postage. Please send a Check or money order in the amount of $53.50 to the Sutter County Sheriff's Office, Attn: Captain Skinner and we will mail the documents you requested. If you would rather have your staff personally inspect any of these paper documents, we will make the documents and office space available during any regular business hour.
Please reply to this email so that I will know you received it.
