This review is considered to be the last step in the internal administrative process. Inmates are required to exhaust their administrative remedies prior to filing litigation in the court system. The review conducted at both the facility and departmental level assists in preventing unnecessary litigation. Hundreds of inmate letters are received in Administrative Review every year with a response forwarded for each one received. The unit serves as a contact point for field staff, family members, and legislators who have questions regarding the department's disciplinary process and grievance process.
