Communications

From: Tom Nash

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All emails, memos or complaints generated or received about the August 2013 issue of Rolling Stone

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request 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 as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

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.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Tom Nash

Well aware. However, I'd still like to know if there are any records as described in my request.

Thanks

Hi Tom,

We received your request for: All emails, memos or complaints generated or received about the August 2013 issue of Rolling Stone, however, with approximately 2,500 employees, 13 police stations and many specialized bureaus/units in the BPD, you can start to imagine how long it would take to compile this info & the costs involved. Our office alone receives approximately 100 phone calls & emails every day. I can tell you that our office did receive emails regarding the issue of Rolling Stone. Please let me know how you wish to proceed.

From: Tom Nash

Hi David,

Go ahead and limit this to the Chief and your communications office.

Thanks

Tom
