Ms. Axtman,

Your letter denying my request says that the records responsive to this request (communications referring to my media organization) which may be in your possession "are from another criminal justice agency." To which agency or agencies do you refer?

Thank you for your time and for your commitment to transparency.

sincerely,
Christopher Thomas
