Lt. Hewitt,

I assume, based on your previous email that does not include instructions or a salutation, that you would like for me to follow the link and submit my request there.

When I click the link on the page, I am simply directed a site advertising FOIA management software for municipal governments. I am unable to submit my request through the site.

Please advise.

Respectfully,
Alex Cartwright
