Status
Completed

Communications

From: Beryl Lipton

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

All materials and records describing and sufficient to show/disclose all allegations of misconduct made and all disciplinary proceedings taken against any officer, employee, or representative of this policing agency.

As described in the New York Freedom of Information Law, a record is "any information kept, held, filed, produced or reproduced by, with or for an agency or the state legislature, in any physical form whatsoever including, but not limited to, reports, statements, examinations, memoranda, opinions, folders, files, books, manuals, pamphlets, forms, papers, designs, drawings, maps, photos, letters, microfilms, computer tapes or discs, rules, regulations or codes." Records kept in a digital or electronic form are also records, would be responsive to this request, and should be provided.

These records are typically required to be retained under the New York State Records Retention and Disposition Schedule MU-1 (http://www.archives.nysed.gov/records/retention_mu-1), including, but not limited to, item no. 365, which includes: "Investigative records and disciplinary proceedings, including but not limited to statement of charge, transcript of hearing, notice of decision, letter of termination or resignation, letter of reinstatement, record of appeal procedure, and correspondence." While materials under that schedule have a set retention of 3 years after the final decision rendered, this request and materials responsive to it include *all* records held in the possession of any office or individual employed or formerly employed by this policing agency, including those kept off-site, in digital form, and in personnel files.

Please note that any failure to provide all potentially-responsive materials and/or the destruction of materials potentially responsive to this request would be a violation of the spirit of the New York Freedom of Information Law, as well as unlawful under the New York FOIL and the terms of the attached litigation hold notice.

Materials responsive to this request include — but are not limited to — all complaints, reports, records of discipline and penalties, aggregate collections of complaint and disciplinary materials (spreadsheets, databases), investigatory materials, relevant related correspondence, photographs, video, other related evidence, proof of discipline or fulfillment of penalties, and all personnel materials (including those used in promotion, contract, and other employment negotiations and considerations) that reference or utilize misconduct allegations or disciplinary materials of any sort.

Materials responsive to this request include all complaints— internal, external, and civilian — and include records disclosing the names, badge numbers, and personnel identification of each officer involved and/or serving as a witness, as well as all available details of the incident/complaint: date, time, location, nature of the incident, description of the incident, nature of the investigation, investigatory materials, the disposition of the case, and any subsequent materials related to the execution of any resultant discipline. Responsive materials include all complaints and allegations against any officer, employee, or representative of this policing agency, regardless of whether that complaint or allegation resulted in any investigation or disciplinary action.

Responsive materials also include all records of use of force by officers, including records disclosing the names, badge numbers, and personnel identification of each officer involved and/or serving as a witness, as well as all available details of the incident: date, time, location, nature of the incident, description of the incident, nature of the use of force, subsequent investigatory materials related to the use of force, the disposition of any investigation into the incident, and any subsequent materials related to the use of force.

Please provide materials on a rolling basis, beginning with materials created during the following timeframes:
• January 1, 2010 - June 15, 2020
• January 1, 2000 - January 1, 2010
• January 1, 1990 - January 1, 2000
• January 1, 1980 - January 1, 1990
• January 1, 1970 - January 1, 1980

Pursuant to NYCRR Section 1401.5(c)(1), should any of this request be unclear or lack sufficient description for your office, please provide direction that would enable this requester to request records reasonably described. Please also note that the New York FOIL states: "An agency shall not deny a request on the basis that the request is voluminous or that locating or reviewing the requested records or providing the requested copies is burdensome because the agency lacks sufficient staffing or on any other basis if the agency may engage an outside professional service to provide copying, programming or other services required to provide the copy...." Please also see FOIL AO 19671, an Advisory Opinion from the Committee on Open Government [https://docs.dos.ny.gov/coog/ftext/f19671.htm].

If your office has questions about this request or would like to discuss it for any reason, please contact this requester via the contact email address provided and feel free to follow up by phone: 617-299-1832. This request is being submitted to each policing agency in New York as part of a collaborative project led by MuckRock and involving multiple other educational and journalistic partners and participants. For this reason, over the lifetime of this request, your agency may interface with individuals not listed on this initial communication.

This request is being made in the public interest by a news organization as part of non-profit (not commercial) journalistic work and research on behalf of the public. 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 and as part of the necessary negotiations for successful processing. As far as it is possible, please fulfill elements of this request 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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Beryl Lipton

Hello Captain Rinaldo,

Thank you for your letter. I have not yet spoken with a member of your staff, so I'm not sure why, exactly, your team believes that, even with reasonable effort to identify and locate responsive records, your office lacks the ability to fulfill this request. I look forward to learning more about this, and I hope in the meantime, your office can proceed with processing this request, beginning with disciplinary cards and related materials associated with each active officer of your department. I'll be happy to discuss further refinement from there. I understand that your current recordkeeping may lack the organization to make pulling responsive records difficult, but, as you know, these materials are of great interest to the public.

Thank you for your time and help.

All the best,
Beryl

provide copying, programming or other services required to provide the

This request is being made in the public interest by a news organization as
part of non-profit (not commercial) journalistic work and research on

if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my
request and as part of the necessary negotiations for successful
processing. As far as it is possible, please fulfill elements of this

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the following records:

All materials and records describing and sufficient to show/disclose all allegations of misconduct made and all disciplinary proceedings taken against any officer, employee, or representative of this policing agency.

As described in the New York Freedom of Information Law, a record is "any information kept, held, filed, produced or reproduced by, with or for an agency or the state legislature, in any physical form whatsoever including, but not limited to, reports, statements, examinations, memoranda, opinions, folders, files, books, manuals, pamphlets, forms, papers, designs, drawings, maps, photos, letters, microfilms, computer tapes or discs, rules, regulations or codes." Records kept in a digital or electronic form are also records, would be responsive to this request, and should be provided.

These records are typically required to be retained under the New York State Records Retention and Disposition Schedule MU-1 (http://www.archives.nysed.gov/records/retention_mu-1), including, but not limited to, item no. 365, which includes: "Investigative records and disciplinary proceedings, including but not limited to statement of charge, transcript of hearing, notice of decision, letter of termination or resignation, letter of reinstatement, record of appeal procedure, and correspondence." While materials under that schedule have a set retention of 3 years after the final decision rendered, this request and materials responsive to it include *all* records held in the possession of any office or individual employed or formerly employed by this policing agency, including those kept off-site, in digital form, and in personnel files.

Please note that any failure to provide all potentially-responsive materials and/or the destruction of materials potentially responsive to this request would be a violation of the spirit of the New York Freedom of Information Law, as well as unlawful under the New York FOIL and the terms of the attached litigation hold notice.

Materials responsive to this request include all complaints— internal, external, and civilian — and include records disclosing the names, badge numbers, and personnel identification of each officer involved and/or serving as a witness, as well as all available details of the incident/complaint: date, time, location, nature of the incident, description of the incident, nature of the investigation, investigatory materials, the disposition of the case, and any subsequent materials related to the execution of any resultant discipline. Responsive materials include all complaints and allegations against any officer, employee, or representative of this policing agency, regardless of whether that complaint or allegation resulted in any investigation or disciplinary action.

Responsive materials also include all records of use of force by officers, including records disclosing the names, badge numbers, and personnel identification of each officer involved and/or serving as a witness, as well as all available details of the incident: date, time, location, nature of the incident, description of the incident, nature of the use of force, subsequent investigatory materials related to the use of force, the disposition of any investigation into the incident, and any subsequent materials related to the use of force.

Please note that any failure to provide all potentially-responsive

complaints, reports, records of discipline and penalties, aggregate
collections of complaint and disciplinary materials (spreadsheets,

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York Freedom of Information Law, I hereby request the
following records:

All materials and records describing and sufficient to show/disclose all
law enforcement disciplinary records, including materials on allegations of
misconduct made and all disciplinary proceedings taken against any law
enforcement officer currently or formerly in the employ of this policing
agency.

For a more specific definition of the term “law enforcement disciplinary
record,” please see Section 86 of the New York Public Officers Law. For a
more specific definition of the term “law enforcement officer,” please
refer to the definitions of peace officer found in subdivisions
twenty-three and twenty-three-a of section 2.10 of the criminal procedure
law and subdivision twenty-four of section 2.10 of the criminal procedure
law, as well as the definition of police officer found in section 1.20 of
the criminal procedure law.

As described in the New York Freedom of Information Law, a record is:
"any information kept, held, filed, produced or reproduced by, with or for
an agency or the state legislature, in any physical form whatsoever
including, but not limited to, reports, statements, examinations,
memoranda, opinions, folders, files, books, manuals, pamphlets, forms,
papers, designs, drawings, maps, photos, letters, microfilms, computer
tapes or discs, rules, regulations or codes."
Records kept in a digital or electronic form are also records, would be
responsive to this request, and should be provided.

The request records are typically required to be retained, in part, under
the New York State Records Retention and Disposition Schedule MU-1 (
http://www.archives.nysed.gov/records/retention_mu-1), including, but not
limited to, item no. 365, which includes:
"Investigative records and disciplinary proceedings, including but not
limited to statement of charge, transcript of hearing, notice of decision,
letter of termination or resignation, letter of reinstatement, record of
appeal procedure, and correspondence."
While materials under that schedule have a set retention of 3 years after
the final decision rendered, this request and materials responsive to it
include *all* records held in the possession of any office or individual
employed or formerly employed by this policing agency, including those kept
off-site, in digital form, and in personnel files.

Please note that any failure to provide all potentially-responsive
materials and/or the destruction of materials potentially responsive to
this request would be a violation of the spirit of the New York Freedom of
Information Law, as well as unlawful under the New York FOIL and the terms
of the previously-submitted litigation hold notice.

Materials responsive to this request include — but are not limited to — all
complaints, reports, records of discipline and penalties, aggregate
collections of complaint and disciplinary materials (spreadsheets,
databases), investigatory materials, relevant related correspondence,
photographs, video, other related evidence, proof of discipline or
fulfillment of penalties, and all personnel materials (including those used
in promotion, contract, and other employment negotiations and
considerations) for which the misconduct allegations or disciplinary
materials are relevant.

Materials responsive to this request include all complaints— internal,
external, and civilian — and include records disclosing the names, badge
numbers, and personnel identification of each officer involved and/or
serving as a witness, as well as all available details of the
incident/complaint: date, time, location, nature of the incident,
description of the incident, nature of the investigation, investigatory
materials, the disposition of the case, and any subsequent materials
related to the execution of any resultant discipline. Responsive materials
include all complaints and allegations against any officer, employee, or
representative of this policing agency, regardless of whether that
complaint or allegation resulted in any investigation or disciplinary
action.

Responsive materials also include all records of use of force by officers,
including records disclosing the names, badge numbers, and personnel
identification of each officer involved and/or serving as a witness, as
well as all available details of the incident: date, time, location, nature
of the incident, description of the incident, nature of the use of force,
subsequent investigatory materials related to the use of force, the
disposition of any investigation into the incident, and any subsequent
materials related to the use of force.

Please provide materials on a rolling basis, beginning with materials
created during the following timeframes:
• January 1, 2010 - November 30, 2020
• January 1, 2000 - January 1, 2010
• January 1, 1990 - January 1, 2000
• January 1, 1980 - January 1, 1990
• January 1, 1970 - January 1, 1980

If materials are not available for the requested timeframes, please let me
know for which periods they are available. We understand that not all
recordkeeping systems facilitate convenient access to some materials.

Pursuant to NYCRR Section 1401.5(c)(1), should any of this request be
unclear or lack sufficient description for your office, please provide
direction that would enable this requester to request records reasonably
described. Please also note that the New York FOIL states:
"An agency shall not deny a request on the basis that the request is
voluminous or that locating or reviewing the requested records or providing
the requested copies is burdensome because the agency lacks sufficient
staffing or on any other basis if the agency may engage an outside
professional service to provide copying, programming or other services
required to provide the copy...."
Please also see FOIL AO 19671, an Advisory Opinion from the Committee on
Open Government [https://docs.dos.ny.gov/coog/ftext/f19671.htm].

If your office has questions about this request or would like to discuss it
for any reason, please contact this requester via the contact email address
provided and feel free to follow up by phone: 617-299-1832.

This request is being submitted to each policing agency in New York as part
of a collaborative project led by MuckRock and involving multiple other
educational and journalistic partners and participants. For this reason,
over the lifetime of this request, your agency may interface with
individuals not listed on this initial communication.

This request is being made in the public interest by a news organization as
part of non-profit (not commercial) journalistic work and research on
behalf of the public. 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 and as part of the necessary negotiations for successful
processing.

As far as it is possible, please fulfill elements of this request
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 5 business
days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Beryl Lipton

Hello Captain Rinaldo,

Thank you for your letter. I have not yet spoken with a member of your
staff, so I'm not sure why, exactly, your team believes that, even with
reasonable effort to identify and locate responsive records, your office
lacks the ability to fulfill this request. I look forward to learning more
about this, and I hope in the meantime, your office can proceed with
processing this request, beginning with disciplinary cards and related
materials associated with each active officer of your department. I'll be
happy to discuss further refinement from there. I understand that your
current recordkeeping may lack the organization to make pulling responsive
records difficult, but, as you know, these materials are of great interest
to the public.

Thank you for your time and help.

All the best,
