Hello Caroline,
I am happy to assist with your FOIA request.
After reviewing your submission, I don’t believe the Department of State is the custodian of any of the public records you are seeking.
As I understand, the State Police/Department of Homeland Security are responsible for licensing alarm companies in Delaware. If you are able to give me a call, we can discuss your request in more detail and I can attempt to help guide you in the right direction.
Please use my cell number listed below.
