To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

According to a report officers from the Cambridge Police visited an "Anti-Defamation League National Counter-Terrorism Seminar" (hereby the ADL) in Israel. For the last three years:

- Any and all records about invoices and payments made to cover the cost of this trip
- Documents sufficient to show which officers received this training
- Documents sufficient to show how the trip was paid for
- Documents sufficient to show if officers have gone on similar trips in the last five years
- Documents sufficient to show communications between Cambridge Police, ADL, and if available, other offices such as the mayor's office.

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 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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Freddy Martinez

From: Cambridge Police Department

Good evening. The Cambridge Police Department has no responsive documents associated with travel to the ADL in Israel over the last three years.

A follow-up response will be submitted to identify if there are any responsive documents associated between the Cambridge Police and the ADL.

Good afternoon. There are approximately 1,224 records that involve the Cambridge Police and the ADL within the requested time period. As a result of such a large volume, a cost estimate would be required in order to fulfill this request. Before a cost estimate is prepared, please let us know if you would like to narrow your search to make the fulfillment process more efficient.

Hi Jeremy,

I would like a cost estimate before I narrow the search.

Best,
Freddy Martinez

From: Cambridge Police Department

Good afternoon, Freddy.

As noted, there are approximately 1,224 pages of documents associated with this request.

Due to the volume of documentation and resources required to support this request, a fee will be required. It is estimated that it will take multiple parties from the Cambridge Police Department approximately twenty-four (24) additional hours to process (review, redact and approve) your request of these relevant records.

The City of Cambridge has already waived the fees associated with the first two hours of processing time. As a result, the estimated fee would be $480.00 ($20/applicable hourly rate x 24 hours) plus the cost of $61.20 to print and copy the responsive documentation (1,224 x .$0.05). Therefore, the total fee estimate is $541.20.

Sincerely

Jeremy Warnick
Director of Communications
Cambridge Police Department
