Tom Nash filed this request on behalf of Todd Feathers with the Frederick County Sheriff's Office of Frederick County, VA.

It is a clone of this request.

Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

1) Audit/use logs, since Jan. 1, 2020, documenting each time a department employee has accessed, queried, uploaded, downloaded, or otherwise used the Virginia Framework for Addiction Analysis and Community Transformation (FAACT) database(s), including , where available, the employee's position, the purpose for which the database(s) was used, the date, and any associated case numbers. Participants in the FAACT program and the Commonwealth Data Trust are required to maintain audit/use logs for transparency and auditing purposes in order to participate in the programs.

I ask that all fees be waived as intend to use the requested records to further public understanding of public agencies and not for any commercial purpose. In the event you choose to impose fees, I request a detailed breakdown of the fees, including the hourly wage of each employee involved and an explanation justifying the employee hours required to fulfill the request.

Should you choose to reject this request or redact portions of responsive documents, I ask that you provide a detailed breakdown of the statutory exemptions and associated case law underlying your decision to withhold each/any portions from public review.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

This request is filed by Tom Nash, a citizen of Virginia, in coordination with Todd Feathers.

Hello Captain Lang,

Thank you very much for your help with this. A quick question for clarification: Does your office not have responsive records because it doesn't use the FAACT database? Or because there are no logs of its use?

Appreciate it!

From: Frederick County Sheriff's Office

We do not use the FAACT database.
