From: Dan Staples

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Maryland Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I am requesting for every sworn Baltimore City Police Officer, in a machine readable format (in an Excel speadsheet would be fine), as of, or as close to, August 15, 2018:

- Unique sequence number
- Current badge number

These records should be kept by the Quartermaster's office.

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 calendar days, as the statute requires, as the statute requires. If access to the records I am requesting will take longer than this amount of time, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.

If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law. If you determine that some portions of the requested records are exempt from disclosure, please provide me with the portions that can be disclosed.

Good Morning:

I have sent this request to the proper unit.

I was advised that Wayne Brooks might have the information in his data base already.

Problem is Wayne will not be back in the office until 11 September 18.

Can you hold off until after that?

Thank you

Respectfully,

I would prefer to get the most up-to-date document from the HR department, as I would guess the copy in Wayne Brook's database is an older version from a previous MPIA request I made in May. Would that be possible?

thanks,
Dan

From: Dan Staples

Sorry in my last email I meant to say I would prefer to get an up-to-date list from the Quartermaster's office, which I was told is where badge numbers are recorded.

thanks,
Dan
