Constituent Affairs

The Constituent Affairs Section “CAS” will address your general questions or concerns about incarcerated persons. A constituent should contact CAS when they have already tried to reach the institution directly or you want to share information but keep your identity private. Some issues may require us to consult with the appropriate subject matter experts before responding back to you.
