To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Texas Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
This request has to do with the Ballistic Armored Tactical Transport, commonly known as the B.A.T.T., which is manufactured by the Armored Group LLC. I ask for:
-Contractual documents. Examples of this are invoices, purchases orders, contracts, loan agreements, procurement documents etc.
-Records of communication with the Armored Group LLC, which has a domain of @armoredcars.com. This correspondence from the department would likely be coming from either the chief of police or a head of procurement.
-Training and/or usage guidelines or policy for this vehicle.
-Any utilization logs for this vehicle.
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, as the statute requires.
APD does not have any responsive information to this request, as we have not purchased any Ballistic Armored Tactical Transports by the Armored Group LLC.
Your request will now be closed.
