Good Evening Sir,

We are currently working on your request however it will take more than three days to complete. We also need additional details on the specific vendor in which you are requesting. We can only pull reports based on vendor; not commodity only.

Hello Officer Brown,

I have been researching potential vendors that APD may use for these commodities. In doing so, I have come to the conclusion that this basically is searching for a needle in a hay stack, there are tens of potential vendors APD may use for each one of these commodities. Furthermore, even if I was to give you a near complete (it would likely be impossible for me to completely cover my bases for potential vendors) list of vendors, I think it would end up in way too much work for APD's records office as well. What I was wondering was whether I could work with you to identify the vendors Atlanta Police use for all this equipment. I would be happy to speak to the head of procurement of financials as well if you could send me their numbers and let them know I would be calling. Let me know what you think. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Curtis Waltman
