To Whom It May Concern:

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.

OK Shawn;

I am not sure what the data will look like, but if IT can provide it
electronically, I assume they are the only one's who can provide it, I
will forward it to you. If that is all it takes, there will be no fees. I
am not sure how complex the request is but IT will advise and I will get
back to you. Also, are there ANY other FOIA's outstanding for you or
MUCKROCK? Let me know and I will see where they are. Captain MJG

We are acquiring the bait bike info. It is held by Sprint since it is very basic and is public street data only.

Police presence is $20. Once you send money, we will forward via US postal service.

Equipment inventory is in process, but under our State regulations we only release basic information (I.e number of cars, police officers w/ equipment) I will get an estimate today.

we do not hold ANY data on GPS coordinates. It is held by a 3rd party vendor,
That should fulfill this request. As you know under FOIA and PIA Regs, we can provide what we don;t have.

Now down to for Police Presence in Schools; waiting for fee payment

Just got another one on Overtime for Police. Would appreciate the requests from MUCKROCK coming from you. The OT request has costs. I will send an estimate to the requestee w/in the 10 days.

From: Captain Gropman


This should be what is left. We have the $ outstanding for the School, and we do not hold information on GPS coordinates. When we needs it we contact Sprint. Note: It is nothing more than a dot that moves and has to be super-imposed on a map IF it moves. If it doesn;t. It didn't;t for many many months, nothing is Saved. I am still trying to figure out if there is anything we have worthwhile. When I find it I will send it. Captain MJG
