The superintendent of every jail farm shall report on the first day of each month
to the Director, giving the record of each prisoner received during the preceding
month on blank forms to be furnished by the Director, stating whether the offense
of each prisoner is for violation of state law or of city or town ordinance. The report shall be signed by both the superintendent of the jail farm and the chief
administrative officer of the county or city which administers the jail farm. Either signer found guilty of willfully falsifying the information contained in
such report shall be guilty of a Class 1 misdemeanor.
If any superintendent fails to send such report within five days after the date when
the report should be forwarded, the Director shall notify the superintendent of such
failure. If the superintendent fails to make the report within ten days from that date, then
the Director shall cause the report to be prepared from the books of the superintendent
and shall certify the cost thereof to the Comptroller. The Comptroller shall issue his warrant on the Treasurer for that amount, deducting
the same from any funds that may be due the superintendent by the Commonwealth.
