CITY OF CHICAGO
December 1, 2020 RE: FOIA Request #F202806-110520
Dear J Ader:
On behalf of the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC), I am responding to your Freedom of Information (FOIA) request that our office received on November 05, 2020, wherein you requested the following information: "To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act., I hereby request the following records:

All Chicago Police Department Event Query Reports from November 3rd, 2020 to November 5th, 2020 regarding any/all protests taking place in District 1 or District 18.

Here is an example of a Event Query Report produced as a responsive document to a former OEMC FOIA request to serve as an aid in retrieving records for this request: https://cdn.muckrock.com/foia_files/2018/07/06/1380_001.pdf

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

J Ader

In response to your request, the OEMC is providing you with the redacted 9-1-1 event queries. Be advised,  license plate numbers and city of Chicago employee identification numbers have been redacted pursuant to 7 (1)(b) of FOIA, which provides that public bodies may redact information that is considered private.  5ILCS 2(c-5) of FOIA defines private information as follows:
"Private information" means unique identifiers, including a person's social security number, driver's license number, employee identification number, biometric identifiers, personal financial information, passwords or other access codes, medical records, home or personal telephone numbers and email addresses.  Private information also includes home address and personal license plates, except as otherwise provided by law or when compiled without possibility of attribution to any person.
Personal information contained within public records, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, unless the disclosure is consented to in writing by the individual subjects of the information.
"Unwarranted invasion of personal privacy" means the disclosure of information that is highly personal or objectionable to a reasonable person and in which the subject's right to privacy outweighs any legitimate public interest in obtaining the information.
Statements about the physical condition of the persons involved are contained within some of the 911 records you have requested. Having this information released to the general public may cause embarrassment and undue anxiety to the persons involved, as well as their families. In addition, you have not provided anything to demonstrate that the public’s interest in that information outweighs the personal right to privacy at issue.
To the extent a portion of your FOIA request has been denied, you have a right of review by the Illinois Attorney General's Public Access Counselor who can be contacted at 500 S. Second St., Springfield, IL 62706 or by telephone at (877)-299-FOIA. You may also seek judicial review of a denial under 5 ILCS 140/11 of FOIA.
Sincerely, M. Mason - OEMC FOIA
