Guidelines on laundry arrangements at TTG

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Correctional Services Department should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Correctional Services Department,

I am writing to make an information access request regarding the relevant procedures regarding laundry and clean clothing available to immigration detainees at Tai Tam Gap Correctional Institution. May I know,

1. Are there arrangements for laundry for immigration detainees at CIC?

2. If so, how often are laundry services provided?

3. What laundry-related tools and products are provided to detainees? For example, laundry detergent and racks for drying clothes.

4. If there are relevant guidelines / procedures for the circumstances specified above, may I receive a copy of the relevant documents?

Thanks very much for your help on this matter. I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,

Gigi Lo

Dear Correctional Services Department,

Thanks very much for your clarification question and the follow up. I would like to confirm that the original question about the laundry arrangements is pertaining to Tai Tam Gap Correctional Institution (TGCI) instead of CIC.
