Cobb County Police Department: Flock Safety

Aarian Marshall filed this request with the Cobb County Police Department of Cobb County, GA.


From: Aarian Marshall

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Georgia Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any emails, written communications, documents, contracts, presentations, or other communications between officials from the Cobb County Police Department and officials from the company "Flock Safety."

WIRED Magazine is seeking Cobb County Police records of any kind, including electronic records, audiotapes, videotapes, and photographs, as well as letters, emails, facsimiles, telephone messages, voice mail messages and transcripts, notes, and minutes of any meetings. The search should be limited to responsive records created between January 1, 2018 and the day the request is fulfilled.

Here are the specific officials' email accounts I am requesting to be searched:

Chief of Police M.J. Register
Chief of Staff
Deputy Chief, Field Operations Command
Deputy Chief, Special Investigations and Response Command
Assistant Commander in charge of Traffic Enforcement, Special Investigations and Response Command
Deputy Chief, Support and Administrative Command

In the event some portions of the requested records are properly exempt from disclosure, please disclose any reasonably segregable non-exempt portions of the requested records. If it is your position that a document contains non-exempt segments, but that those non-exempt segments are so dispersed throughout the document as to make segregation impossible, please state what portion of the document is non-exempt, and how the material is dispersed throughout the document. If a request is denied in whole, please state specifically that it is not reasonable to segregate portions of the record for release.

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.
