From: Ben Hallman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the state open records law, Ariz. Rev. Stat. Ann. Secs. 39-121 to 39-122 and 39-128, I hereby request the following records:

Police reports for every motor vehicle break-in and/or larceny from a motor vehicle that occurred in 2015. I want to determine how many vehicle break-ins occurred in your jurisdiction and basic information about each, including what, if anything, was stolen.

I want to see all the information contained in each police report, including, but not limited to, the time and location of each crime; the criminal's method of entry; the make and model of the vehicle; descriptions of what was stolen and where from inside the vehicle each item was stolen; victims' names, ages, addresses and contact information; and the narrative summary of what happened.

If this data is collated in a digital file or database, providing the results of a search query that yields this information would be an acceptable substitute to physical copies of the reports.

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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,

Ben Hallman

We do not release victim information. Also, if we provide police reports
to fulfill this request, the cost may be rather high. Just wanted to give
you a heads up.

Hi Seth,

Yes this email is perfect.

Given the quantity of reports that our request is likely to produce, we want to narrow it. Instead of requesting incident reports for every larceny from a motor vehicle in 2015, we are now only requesting reports for larcenies from motor vehicles in which a firearm was stolen in 2015.

We still want see as much information contained in the report as allowable by law.

Please also provide the TOTAL number of larcenies from motor vehicles that were reported to your department in 2015, no matter what, if anything, was stolen. All we need here is a number.

From:

Thanks for getting back with me Ben;

This sounds much more manageable, thank you. I'm off today but I cc'd my boss so he can start working on it.

Regards,

Seth

Good afternoon Muckrock;

We received a new request from you guys on 8/2/16. In this request, it
mentions the July 21 & 22 requests and states, 'If you have not already
completed that request, please complete this one first if possible.' For
your info, we had not completed the 7/21-7/22 request and stopped working
on it to fulfill the 8/2/ request. I'm hoping to have the 8/2/ request to
you by the end of the week.

Thanks,

Seth
