Books to Prison Restricted

Published: Dec. 11, 2020


Dear Friends:

I recently received the following letter from the Ombudsman Bureau of the Department of Corrections that is part of the Department of Administration of the State of Indiana.

This letter regards a complaint I filed with the bureau in May, concerning non-delivery of a book of Faith and Practice to a person residing in a prison in Indiana.

I am not sure whether that person will want to submit a grievance regarding this matter. That would be the next step in a process of attempting to send a book to a resident of an Indiana prison.
