These include, but are not limited to, all records related to instances in which a weapon was used or discharged.

Responsive materials include records of all settlements (formal and informal) and payments to which this agency was or is a party for the period from January 1, 2010 through the date this request is processed. Responsive materials include those for matters and legal claims resolved prior to the initiation of any litigation.

In particular, materials responsive to this request include all reports, lists, databases, spreadsheets, and other documentation detailing incidents of legal claims or other allegations requiring compensation for claimants, attorneys, or any other party.

The amount spent to date as a result of the legal engagement
The amount paid to any parties related to the legal claim, including any city payout and any non-monetary compensation

This request is being made by a journalist as part of a journalistic investigation. It is being submitted to your agency because a member of your community requested it be included in our effort. There is no commercial interest in this request, and its submission and the release of materials is in the public interest.
