From: Woodford County Sheriff's Office

To whom it concerns,

I have attached the requested communications contracts for Jail
Education Solutions (Edovo) (Wireless tablets for inmates), Securus
(Inmate phone & Video Visiting) and Swanson (Commissary and inmate
email). Also included in the attachment is a report regarding user fees
for eNotez, a closed email system used by our inmates and overseen by
Trinity Services (Swanson). I will need more time to gather financial
reports regarding the inmate phones due to the fact that the website
needed to gain this information is currently inaccessible. I hope to
have access to this information by Friday 06/15/2018 and will send it as
soon as it is available. We did receive commission from the inmate
phones until approximately February 2017 when we installed our current
visiting system from Securus. We currently do not receive any commission
from the phones or inmate visiting as we waived our commissions to pay
for the video visiting system. We also do not receive commissions from
the inmate tablets. That system is funded by commissary proceeds.

I hope that this satisfies your request for now and I will send the
remainder of the information as soon as it becomes available.
Best regards,

Dennis
