Dear Mr. Neiss:

Thank you for contacting the Public Safety Personnel Retirement System. We are in receipt of your public records request. The request has been forwarded to employees who are owners of these records for assessment and gathering of any records responsive to your request.

At this time we have no questions regarding the request you have sent and are working on it. Should we have any questions we will reach out to you. Unfortunately I am unable to provide a date when the records (if any) are provided to you because some records may reside with different people and take time collate, or they may contain sensitive or confidential information that needs to reviewed by our legal department prior to those records (if applicable) being provided.

Dear Mr. Neiss:

We are in receipt of your public records request dated August 7, 2018 directed to Public Safety Personnel Retirement System (the "System").
The System maintains its records in accordance with all applicable laws, policies and procedures; however, some of the information you have requested may be protected, privileged and/or confidential. Please note that Arizona Public Records Law does not require any agency to create a record in a format that does not already exist. Arizona maintains more than 300 statutes which address the confidentiality of our records and limit disclosure; all records maintained by a public body are not necessarily designated as public. While we strive to maintain transparency, we are required to meticulously follow each and every statute and regulation which apply.

The requested records responsive to your request have been gathered and collated, and are currently under legal review. Once that review is complete, we will provide you with a page count and an invoice for the records. Upon receipt of payment, we will forward any responsive records to the address above.
