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: Population reports for Kansas prisons.
Why you’d want them: To learn more about inmate populations across the state. The reports also include statistics about those on probation and parole.
Where you get them: Go to the Kansas Department of Corrections’ website at www.doc.ks.gov. Click on the “Population Reports” link under the “Popular Links” menu.
How much does it cost: The information is free.
