Hi Mr. Chapman,

Attached is a copy of your original FOIA request of February 13, 2018, along with our response to that FOIA. Under that is your "revised" request of February 21, 2018.

Being that the 2nd inquiry is a revision or narrowing of the 1st, we are revisiting FOIA F180285 and will provide an additional response under that log number.

Thank you for the thorough explanation and information!

With regards to access logs, what I am looking for are any documents or records that indicate when a camera was accessed by any individual or group. These may be files that come from a server-side log file - if that's the case, then it may make the most sense to send raise a question to the IT group that manages those cameras.

The type information that I'd expect to see in access logs would be:
1. Name of individual
2. Reason for access
3. Timestamp of access
4. Information about accessed camera
5. Logged actions taken within the respective interface

For IP addresses - if possible and willing, could you explain why there are no responsive records? I would expect this sort of record to exist in some database somewhere - possibly in DNS. It should be noted that this request is not actually for *public* IP addresses, but just IP addresses themselves - regardless of it being public. That said, if there are no records wrt IP addresses, is there any way to modify the scope of the request to camera host names or similar?

Much appreciated,
Matt Chapman

RE: 2nd Revised FOIA Request for records.

Dear Matt Chapman,

The Office of Emergency Management and Communications received your 2nd revised Freedom of Information Act Request on April 5, 2018. At this time, we are seeking an extension of five (5) additional working days for one or more of the following reasons:

( ) The requested records are stored in whole or in part at other locations than the office having charge of the requested records;

( ) The requested records require the collection of a substantial number of specified records;

( ) The request is couched in categorical terms and requires an extensive search for the records responsive to it;

( ) The requested records have not been located in the course of routine search and additional efforts are being made to locate them;

( ) The requested records require examination and evaluation by personnel having the necessary competence and discretion to determine if they are exempt from disclosure or should be revealed only with appropriate deletions;

( ) The request for records cannot be complied with by the public body within the time limits prescribed by the Freedom of Information Act, 5 ILCS 140/3(c), without unduly burdening or interfering with the operations of the public body;

(x) There is a need for consultation, which shall be conducted with all practicable speed, with another public body or among two or more components of any public body having a substantial interest in the determination or in the subject matter of the request.

Please be aware that the foregoing reason(s) for additional time are found in the Freedom of Information Act, 5 ILCS 140/3(d).

From: Office of Emergency Management and Communications
