From: Conor Skelding

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140/1 to 11), I hereby request the following records:

Copies of any and all reports of firearm discharge filed by officers of the Chicago Police Department from January 1, 2014 through the date when this request is processed.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. 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.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Conor Skelding

Mr. Skelding,

I have been assigned to process your FOIA request (see below - CPD ref. 14-2247).

Could you please provide clarification as to the type of reports you are seeking. Are you seeking reports of officer-involved shooting incidents? Are you seeking reports of every incidence of gunfire in the city of Chicago that results in the generation of a case incident report? Are you seeking all reports in which a victim is shot?

In any event, in order to process the request I will need to consult with the Department's R & D unit. I will follow this email with a formal extension letter.

Thank you,

P.O. Daniel O'Brien

Mr. O'Brien,

Thank you for your timely response. I am seeking reports of office-involved shooting incidents, in which an officer discharged a firearm. Is that clear and processable?

Sincerely,
Conor Skelding

From: FOIA

Mr. Skelding,

Thank you for your response. That does clarify things and narrows the parameters for R & D to search.

As indicated in my previous email, I am attaching a formal extension letter.

Thank you again,

Dear Mr. O'Brien,

In response to your letter of June 11 regarding the narrowing of FOIA File No. 14-2247:

I would like to narrow my requests to only the number of original incident reports for all 46 of the incidents which you referred to. Would the request be so processable?

Thank you for your work on this.

Sincerely,
Conor Skelding

From: FOIA

Mr. Skelding,

It will still take some doing to compile and review the documents to fulfill the request as narrowed, but I believe we should be able to provide something along those lines. I will try to keep you updated with any progress.

Thank you,

P.O. Daniel O'Brien
