Queer inmate policies

Brian Waters filed this request with the Department of Corrections of Vermont.


From: Brian Waters

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Any policies, procedures, or internal memos regarding transgender, homosexual, or queer inmates in Vermont DOC facilities or privately-run correctional facilities.

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.
