Additional information

Inmate case records are created upon arrival of an inmate at a federal penal institution. They are made up from the inmate admission forms and from other documentation. The inmate is given an identification number by an institution and this number becomes the file number of the individual concerned. The file created is the inmates original record and it follows him from institution to institution. In addition to the inmate's case record, hospital or medical files, psychological and psychiatric records, and the like, are placed on the inmate's case file after their release.

Case files consisting of correspondence, admission forms, dental records, medical reports, psychiatric and psychological assessements. Also material relating to trades or education and information on the conduct, parole or release of an inmate. The records are arranged in alphabetical order and the birthdate of each inmate is included.
