Dear Sir or Madam,

RE: Acknowledgement of PDR for indecent exposure cases within a 2 mile radius of Western Washington University from 2008-2019

I am writing to inform you that the City has received your request and to provide a reasonable estimate of the time the City will need to respond to your request as required by RCW 42.56.520(3).

The City needs additional time to locate and assemble the records requested and to determine whether any of the requested records are exempt in whole or in part.

For these reasons, I estimate that the City will need approximately 8 weeks in order to respond to your request. Depending on the size of your request, the City may also exercise its right to provide the responsive records in installments as they become available or to request a deposit.

See RCW 42.56.080 and RCW 42.56.120.

Sincerely,

Erin Herschlip

I see that your files did not successfully transfer when I sent them on the 28th. I have re-sent them and included the reports that were pending previously. Please look for an email from WE TRANSFER with your files. Any reports still outstanding are non-disclosable as they are related to active and open investigations or being held by the authoring officer. This closes your disclosure request at this time.
