Mr. Waltman,

This is a partial response to your request for Baltimore County Police Department records regarding "mobile phone forensics tools such as devices made by the company Cellebrite, IPBox made by MDSec, Secure View by Susteen Inc., Kessler Innovations products, Binary Intelligence products or analysis programs such as those produced by COMPELSON Labs or the XRY software by MSAB."

I have attached Baltimore County Police Department's SOP for use of digital evidence technology.

BCoPD does not have "utilization logs" responsive to your request.

BCoPD is not the custodian of "records of communication" referenced in your request.

We are compiling the BCoPD's responsive contracts, invoices, purchases, loan agreements and procurement documents and will forward in a subsequent email.

Thank you for your patience.
