Hello Andy-

The Colorado Springs Police Department ("CSPD") has received your records request dated February 25, 2020. The records you have requested are considered criminal justice records as defined in Colorado Revised Statute § 24-72-302(4) which are held in the sole possession of CSPD, a law enforcement agency.

The time response deadlines contained within CORA do not apply to requests for criminal justice records governed by the CCJRA.

In regards to your request, those arrested were cited and released, therefore no booking photos exist. Additionally, the CSPD has already released the names and ages of those involved on our social media pages. Please see: https://twitter.com/CSPDPIO/status/1230996844991246336
