Weapons Inventory

Brooke Williams filed this request with the Barnstable County Sheriff's Office of Barnstable County, MA .


From: Brooke Williams

Dear Barnstable County Sheriff's Office,

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all records showing:

1) The department's inventory of any and all weapons and weapon accessories; or
2) Mentioning and/or referring to lost, missing and/or stolen weapons

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is being made by a news reporter and is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Please contact me at 617-300-2319 if you have any questions about the scope of this request or the format of the records.

Thank you in advance for your commitment to an open and transparent government process. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
