Ms. Hopkins,

In regard to your public records request which I received earlier today,
the Wyoming Department of Corrections does not release its Capitol
Punishment policy in its entirety because it contains significant safety
and security information that is protected under the Wyoming Public Records
Act. We do not have a redacted copy available to the public at this time,
however we will consider creating a copy this winter upon the policy's
annual review.

E-Mail to and from me, in connection with the transaction
of public business, is subject to the Wyoming Public Records
Act and may be disclosed to third parties.
