DOC/IRS Partnership Leading to Convictions

Check out this KTUU story when you have time.

This is a great example of the partnerships we have with Federal agencies like the IRS in enforcing laws for both those in and out of custody.

Alaska Department of Corrections officers and facility staff provided resources for cell searches, jail calls, and provided vast insight into the dynamics of prison life that led to convictions.

We appreciate you!
