To Whom It May Concern,

Per the Melbourne Remand Center induction address: If you fight, smuggle contraband, behave aggressively towards anyone, or fail to comply with any directions from a prison officer your sentence may be extended or you will have privileges revoked.

Under this portion of the induction address you could have had your tickets removed thus prolonging your sentence for a bad attitude if that attitude expressed as aggression and/or a failure to comply. In addition any items removed by being processed into the MRC cannot be reclaimed. If you have an item which is not illegal to possess in the future than I advise you use your one phone call to contact a lawyer and/or friend to hold the item for you with the permission of the arresting officer. If the officer declines than request their reason for the denial as well as their rank / name.

That being said I believe that only corrections officers or police officers who are also corrections are permitted to punish prisoners of the MRC. If you believe an officer without lawful authority removed your tickets and you did not behave aggressively or fail to comply than please contact me at my e-mail Jeshin#6713
