Inmate and parolee data on Internet

  • Published Monday, June 20, 2011, at 12:07 a.m.

Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.

The record: Kansas Department of Corrections population reports for inmates in prisons and offenders on parole.

Why you'd want them: To learn more about how many Kansans are under some kind of correctional supervision. The daily reports list the number of inmates at each prison, broken down by gender. Parolees also are broken down by whether they are on low, moderate, close or high supervision.

Where you get the records: From the Corrections Department's website, http://www.dc.state.ks.us/. Click on the "Get KDOC Statistics" link and then on "Population Report."

How much it will cost: The information is free.
