To: J Ader,
This request was assigned however the request itself is too broad as written (Breonna Taylor). For the time requested, which seems to be a reasonable time period, produced 1291 e-mails. Most of those e-mails were Breonna Taylor's name mentioned in articles from media outlets and are not responsive to your request. Less than 100 e-mails were plans or security concerns for possible protests and are not public record under ORC 149.433 which exempts Infrastructure and Security Records.

Thank you,

A. Morris
