Dear Records Officer,
I am requesting records pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140/1 to 11).
In October, the Chicago Police Department provided us a list of the firearms that had been reported stolen between Jan. 1, 2010 and Oct. 26, 2016. That list contained an "RD Number" for each firearm. I am hereby requesting the police reports associated with the following RD Numbers:
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
I am a member of the news media, a reporter for The Trace, a nonprofit news outlet headquartered in New York City. I am making this request through MuckRock's public records management service, which I use to file and better track my requests.
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.
But if you must mail correspondence or records, please use the following address:
Attn: Brian Freskos
New York, NY 10013
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.
