On or before February 1st in each year, a report should be forwarded to the Commission at the State Office Building, Albany, as directed by Sec. 50 of the Correction Law, covering information required as enumerated on forms which are furnished to sheriffs in December. All records should be carefully kept and should be up-to-date. Blanks on which to keep the daily record of population are mailed annually by the Commission.
