Brian,
Would you be willing to modify your request to include only reports that are releasable? I.e. reports that are not currently under investigation or confidential by law (juveniles) etc would not be included. Please let me know how best to proceed.
Thanks

Hi Destiny,

Yes I can agree to that. But can you advise which cases that would eliminate?

Sure thing. I will include the case numbers that will not be released. I’m still waiting to get responses back from the investigative Units but so far it’s only a couple but when I hear back from everyone I will provide you with the info. I will provide responsive information to you by 9/13/17. If completed before then I will make it available.

Hi Destiny,

Thank you again for sending the reports in response to the below request. I'm was going through these again just now and realized one might be missing, and I was wondering if it might be possible to get? It's Case Number 2016-2241681.

My colleague, Marsha McLeod, requested this report yesterday through the city's online public records request portal, but then I realized just now that we had already requested it, but it wasn't included in the docs provided in December. Please let me know.

Thank you so much!
Brian
