To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:

Reports on the number of gun-related deaths from 2010-present. Please include all available segregable data. If further clarification is necessary, a conversation would happily be arranged.

I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at MuckRock.com.

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 look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Caroline Curtis

From: Downes, Maura

Ms. Curtis,

Your organization continues to send multiple staff members at the Connecticut Department of Public Health follow up emails regarding your FOI request for numbers of gun-related deaths in Connecticut.

First and foremost, DPH provided its response to this FOI request on July 28th. Moreover, we have responded to your subsequent emails on more than one occasion to inform you that our response had already been provided. I have once again pasted it to the bottom of this email for your reference.

Second, please direct FOI requests for CT DPH to the following email address, and this address only: dph.foi@ct.gov<mailto:dph.foi@ct.gov>.

Lastly, the repeated emails from your organization asking for information you were already supplied more than a month ago is bordering on harassment. This is also not the first FOI request that DPH has fulfilled for your organization, only to be emailed repeatedly afterward asking for an update on the fulfillment of the request. If these emails are being automatically generated by your computer system, which seems likely to be the case, I strongly recommend your organization take appropriate action to ensure that your system is updated so that these harassing emails cease. If they do not, DPH will consider appropriate additional steps on our end to ensure that agency and staff resources and time are not being wasted on requests from your organization that have already been fulfilled.

Sincerely,

Maura
