Log of police overtime pay for bomb scare at Harvard University

Jasper Craven filed this request with the Cambridge Police Department of Cambridge, MA.


From: Jasper Craven

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

A log enumerating the number of overtime hours and pay expended during a bomb scare at Harvard University on Dec. 16, 2013

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 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.

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.

The large percentage of the Cambridge Police and Fire personnel who responded to the Harvard University bomb hoax was from on duty staff. The only additional cost for the response was for five members of the Police Department who were called in on overtime. Total OT expenditure was $1,620.
