Jasper Craven filed this request with the Dover Police Department of Dover, MA.

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

Any documents detailing a security presence in public elementary, middle and high schools, including documents regarding police tactics in public schools and records of arrests/citations given to students

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

From: Peter McGowan

I respectfully decline to provide this information. To divulge tactics and policies crafted to deal with issues at schools would be ill advised. Any information regarding students would be declined under statutes covering juvenile restrictions on sharing information.

I am not aware of any "private security" resources used in Dover schools.

Good day.
