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.

Specifically you have requested, Any records detailing funding for the ice
cream served by Boston police on July 13, 2016, Any records detailing
funding for the truck the ice cream was served from, Any records detailing
pay for the employee(s) who served the ice cream.

The Boston Police Department does not have any records responsive to your
request. Operation Hoodsie Cup receives its ice cream free of charge from
HP Hood LLC. They are generous enough to donate all of the product we are
privileged to give out across the city each summer. The truck was also
donated to BPD back in 2010 at no cost to the BPD. The officers who where
kind enough to hand out the free ice cream on June 13, 2016 did so on a
volunteer basis.

Operation Hoodsie Cup was developed y Hill Holiday and Co-sponsored by HP
Hood back in 2010 as way to engage with the community and build trust among
youth.
