Dear Mr. Chapman:
Your FOIA request requires the collection of tons and tons of records!!   I will need
a time extension to gather the data.   Is there a chance you can modify
your request for a smaller amount of data, say the records from 2018?
Let me know.   Thanks.
Sincerely,
Cindy Lynch
FOIA Officer
Chicago Police Department

From: Matt Chapman

Has there been any progress on this request?

Thanks

From: Chicago Police Department

Dear Mr. Chapman:

Your FOIA request requires the collection of a substantial number of documents. Perhaps, you can
reduce either the time frame to one year or the number of documents requested or both?
You may not be aware that we receive over hundreds of FOIA requests daily. Many times this may result in
a response being delayed.

Sincerely,

Cindy Lynch
Freedom of Information Officer
Chicago Police Department

I am well aware of the volume of requests that CPD receives.

The information responsive to this request is far too important for the public's understanding of CPD's activities, and as such, I am not interested in reducing the scope of this request. In your continued handling of this request, bear in mind that your department has passed the statutory time limit that allows the use of the unduly burdensome exemption.

I look forward to receiving these records ASAP.

From: Matt Chapman

Dear Mr. Chapman:

I am still waiting for the data. Hopefully, I should have something soon.

From: Chicago Police Department

Dear Mr. Chapman:

I have received the data and it is being reviewed by personnel from other bureaus. Hopefully, I should
have something very soon.
