Why was the Angola tour cancelled?
Working in corrections, we all understand that at times programs are cancelled. We do not know the specific reasons behind the warden’s decision.
How do I get my partial reimbursement?
You will receive a refund of $25 before the date of the tour.
What if I don’t want to go on the tour?
You are free to opt out of the tour but there is no transportation reimbursement.
Thank you for understanding.
