This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Felix Lee to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department of Corrections,

I would like to request details under the OIA regarding the Bank Accounts Upon Release scheme.

1. What are the types of ID provided and the total number for each ID type provided in this program?
2. How do you decide what type of ID each prisoner gets?
3. Who pays for the ID?
4. How many prisoners applied for bank accounts, how many were successfully opened, and how many were rejected?

Thank you so much for your help

Yours faithfully,

Felix Lee
