Status
Completed

Communications

From: Rahima Nasa

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Ohio Open Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all incident reports (including descriptions of the crime) that have been marked or investigated as potential anti-American Indian/Alaskan bias-motivated crimes by your agency since Jan. 1, 2010.

I would like the records in a machine-readable, electronic format if possible. If the records are kept in another format, or kept individually, I would still like copies.

This request is made as part of the Documenting Hate Project, a collaboration involving dozens of news organizations, led by ProPublica. Coverage from the project is compiled at https://projects.propublica.org/graphics/hatecrimes#hatecrime-coverage.

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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,

Rahima Nasa

From: Columbus Division of Police

I would also like to amend my original request to say that I won't be making these incident reports public.

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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,

Rahima Nasa

Rahima,

The records unit is pulling these reports for you and putting them on a disc. I will need an address where someone will be available to sign for the disc because we have to send everything certified mail with a return receipt. The cost of shipping the disc will be $9-12, but I will send you a notification for the exact cost once I get an address from you. Please let me know at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

Respectfully,

The cost to ship a CD will be $9.70 and the cost of the CD is $1.00. The total cost of your request will be $10.70. Please follow the directions on the attached letter very closely.

Hi Kathy,
Got it. For now, can you just send me the incident report for this case with the incident number 160942575-001 which took place on 6/1/16 1:30 PM? Would it be possible to only get that one via e-mail attachment. I will send the the check for the postage fro the other incidents shortly.

Thank you so much,
