Good Morning Mr. Waltman,

Thank you for following up on the request that you submitted.

I have been in contact with the office that this request would be filled by several times since May 17th.

That department is working to fill your request and I will be sure to get it to you when they have it completed.

They did tell me that the records only go back 3 years, so the years previous to that will not be filled.

Sincerely,
Elizabeth A. McNinch

Hello Mr. Waltman,

Please see the above attachment for your public records request.

The information was only available back to 2013.

The body armor for officers is included in the uniform budget which covers all uniform types including hats, shoes, shirts, pants etc. There is not a way to get that statistic as the uniform is all one budget amount.

Have a great day.

Sincerely,
