re: Proposal for establishing
Detained Occupier Support Services(DOSS)
Provide a guaranteed personal point of contact and support services to detained Occupiers in New York Department of Corrections facilities.
Arranging and handling pick-up, storage and shipping of detainees’ personal property, contacting and relaying information to family, friends and significant contacts on behalf of detainees, visiting detainees, delivering desired/requested items, establishing and maintaining commissary accounts, attending court appearances and meeting other reasonable requests of detained Occupiers as-needed.
Example of Services Provided
If an Occupier detainee is taken into custody without financial resources and/or a personal point of contact, the Occupier would contact me with their booking/case number and location within the Department of Corrections. I would visit the detainee to obtain information as to the nature of the arrest, charges, bail requirements and their experience with the New York Police Department, make an initial deposit to their commissary account to allow them to contact family or friends if needed, bring them desired personal property such as clothing or documents or pick-up personal property in their possession at the time of the arrest for delivery or shipping to a location as requested by the Occupier detainee, deliver requested items or documents to their attorney, attend court appearances if requested. Family or friends of the Occupier detainee would have the option of contacting me if they are not able to reach the detainee.
