Good day Sir/Madam,

I am writing to request documents related to the recidivism rate and program effectiveness for inmates in your facility. Specifically, I am interested in obtaining any data or reports that detail the success rates of rehabilitation programs and services offered to inmates, including educational programs, vocational training, and mental health services.
