Charleston Police Response Inquiry

George Joseph filed this request with the Charleston Police Department of Charleston, SC.


From: George Joseph

Dear Records Request Officer:

Pursuant to the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I request any and all electronic communications, reports, or memoranda produced, disseminated, or received by employees of the Charleston Police Department that mention or refer to Dylann Roof, the June 17th killings at the Emanuel AME church, or the subsequent search for the Emanuel AME church shooter.

Additionally, I request audio recording of any 911 calls made by survivors of the Emanuel AME church shooting following the shooting.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public on behalf of a media entity, The Intercept. As this request is not being made for commercial purposes, I request a fee waiver for this request.

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 15 business days, as the statute requires.
