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

1) All emails exchanges–including incoming messages, outgoing messages, forwards, and attachments–between the department's chief/commissioner and ShotSpotter representatives since January 1, 2021. ShotSpotter representatives can be identified by searching the department's email system for addresses ending in "@shotspotter.com."

ShotSpotter representatives can be identified by searching the department's email system for addresses ending in "@shotspotter.com."

I ask that all fees be waived as I intend to use the requested records to further public understanding of government functions and not for any commercial purpose.

In the event that you choose to withhold or redact the records, I ask that you provide a detailed explanation of the statutory and/or case law upon which each rejection or redaction is based.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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.

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,
