Media can request to film stories on programs within DOC facilities.
• On-camera staff interviews can be obtained with a signed release and agency approval
• Offenders (in certain circumstances and with victims being considered first) can be interviewed about their participation in a program, if they are filmed in a completely unidentifiable way and not identified by name.
B-roll can be obtained from around the facility by appointment. Offenders in this footage must not be identifiable.
