To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Iowa Open Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

Use of force data with detail summaries for all use of force incidents from 2008-2016. Please provide the following details for each incident:

Date (year, month, day) of the incident, subject race, officer race, type of force used, whether there was subject injury, and whether there was officer injury.

I prefer csv spreadsheet format (or pdf) where each row represents an incident. Here is an example of the data I'm looking for (https://www.dallasopendata.com/Public-Safety/Police-2015-Response-to-Resistance/594v-2cnd).

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.
