Proof confiscated items are in Spring Hill Corrections Facilities system

Tim Malloy made this Official Information request to Department of Corrections

The request was successful.

From: Tim Malloy

Dear Department of Corrections,
At about 10 am on December 27th 2015. I had confiscated from me one pocket knife 85 mm in length by a staff member identifying himself as 360.
This took place outside the visitors centre at Spring Hill Corrections Facility Hampton Downs.
Due to the manner in which this took place I am suspicious of that persons intent, namely to pocket the knife and not submit the paper work.
I have directed a letter to the Manager of Spring Hill on January 5th asking for proof that the knife had indeed been submitted with the paper work. To date a reply has not been forth coming.
I have spoken with my local police duty sergeant who advised me to contact the manager a second time. I believe this to be a waste of time. Thus I am requesting by this means information that will clarify whether a dishonesty has taken place here.
I did not described the knife, and since no reply in asking photographic evidence of it being in the system has been received, I am more convinced a dishonesty has taken place.

Yours faithfully,
Tim Malloy

Tim, if you wish to see the documents referred to by Corrections in this response, it's best you contact them directly (probably as a Privacy Act request). To protect your privacy, I think they are unlikely to release them publicly under the Official Information Act.
