From: Emma Best


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Arizona Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

Records describing, authorizing or mentioning expenses or personnel assignments in response to or accommodation of visits from officials in the federal government between January 1, 2001 and the present.

I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the government and its activities, with some reaching over 100,000 readers in outlets such as Gizmodo, MuckRock, Motherboard, Property of the People, Unicorn Riot, and The Outline, among others. As such, as I have a reasonable expectation of publication and my editorial and writing skills are well established. In addition, I discuss and comment on the files online and make them available through non-profits such as the library Internet Archive and the journalist non-profit MuckRock, disseminating them to a large audience. While my research is not limited to this, a great deal of it, including this, focuses on the activities and attitudes of the government itself. As such, it is not necessary for me to demonstrate the relevance of this particular subject in advance.

As my primary purpose is to inform about government activities by reporting on it and making the raw data available, I request that fees be waived.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

Good afternoon,
Please be advised that your request has been forwarded to the Public Access Unit by the Media Department.  As such, all communication, as well as the release of responsive records will occur through this GovQA portal.  A separate welcome email is being sent in order for you to set a password for the account created for your request.
We have identified records regarding investigations into alleged violation of the policies regarding methods of physical restraints.  Once these records have been appropriately redacted, you will be notified of the cost.  If after reviewing the investigation synopses you would like a copy of the full investigation report, we can request those records and prepare the investigations, for production.
Regarding the policies, guidance and/or methods portion of your request, please note that the ADCRR has no records regarding anything known as the "short chain" method.  Policies regarding restraints can be found at https://corrections.az.gov/.  Section 800 would be applicable, but you are encouraged to review any policies you deem appropriate.  Post Orders are not subject to a public records request and correctional officer training materials will be heavily redacted.
