To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any lists, databases and inventory rosters containing equipment used in the field of duty (i.e., firearms, protective gear, surveillance equipment, tactical and defense equipment, vehicles, etc). In addition to this inventory I am also requesting a list of equipment procured as a result of the 1033 Program, which sends surplus military gear to local police. Lastly if the Beacon Police Department is part of the program, run by the Defense Logistic Agency Disposition Services, could you include the departments application to be a part of the program.

I also am requesting expedited processing as these records will help contextualize Beacon Police's recent statements regarding the ongoing local protests over the killing of George Floyd.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Dhruv Mehrotra

Re: Freedom of Information Law Request PFD 59-2020

Dear Dhruv Mehrotra:

I am writing in response to your request, dated June 10, 2020 and received the same date, in which you sought certain records from the City of Beacon (the “City”) under New York Freedom of Information Law (“FOIL”), Public Officers Law Article 6. I previously acknowledged receipt of your FOIL request by e-mail, dated June 10, 2020.

Due to the voluminous nature of your request and the complexity/time consuming nature of the review of such records to determine if they must be withheld, produced or redacted, the City requires additional time to compile and review the records responsive to your June 10, 2020 FOIL request. The City expects such records to be available, to the extent they exist and are accessible under FOIL, within ninety (90) calendar days of today (December 3, 2020).

Thank you for your attention.

Very truly yours,

Amanda C. Caputo

Deputy City Clerk

Records Access Officer

From: Dhruv Mehrotra

Hi Amanda, I am happy to withdraw this request as I understand that the material I was looking for has been released by the City Council.

Thanks for your time
Dhruv
