To Whom It May Concern:

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

–Guidelines, protocols, and procedures for collecting, tagging, storing, and maintaining sexual assault evidence kits (also know as SAEC kits or "rape kits") prior to the inception of Premier 1 in March of 2017.

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.

Attached are directives regarding evidence collecting.

Just so you’re aware, Premier 1 is just our report management system.

From what I gather, the procedures have not changed even with the “inception of Premier 1”.
