Stolen Gun Reports, Chicago, IL

Brian Freskos filed this request with the Chicago Police Department of Chicago, IL.


From: Brian Freskos

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:

1) C431426
2) HS103441
3) HZ494999
4) HZ493729
5) HZ490490

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:

The Trace
Attn: Brian Freskos
428 Broadway
4th Floor
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.
