This email is a response to your public records request. Attached are the requested invoice and service agreement for Clearview AI.

Your check or money order must be made payable to the "City of Gainesville" and mailed with the attached invoice to the following address: Gainesville Police Department, Attention: Reggie Wilson in Records Division, 545 NW 8th Avenue, Gainesville, FL 32601. Once your advance payment has been received and production of your request is completed, you will be informed of the final costs associated with your request. Please acknowledge receipt of this email.
Gainesville Public Information Officer,
Thank you for sending this to us and processing our request. We have sent a check to the city for the records in question. If it is not too late, we would like to amend our Sunshine request for a similar set of records. We request an additional search for records related to any marketing materials or training documents that your city may possess related to the use of Clearview AI. They might be in the same email attachments that your city may be reviewing for responsiveness. I don't think this should be an additional search for records but I am happy to discuss.
My number is 202 332 6736. Please give me a call to discuss if needed.
All the best,
I'm sure I'll find out more once the emails are reviewed. Thanks for providing me your number in case further discussion is needed.
You can reach us at 202 332 6736 with any questions.
Hi Gainesville Police,
Our office has confirmed that your payment should have been sent to you last week. Please let us know when you've received payment and begin processing the request.
All the best,
Attached is a receipt for your payment which was received this evening. We will finalize your request and notify you once it's completed.
I'm just wondering if you have an update on when we can expect records.
All the best,
A copy of documents responsive to the request.
A cover letter granting the request and outlining any exempted materials, if any.
The information requested has been placed on a CD and will be mailed this morning to the below address. Thanks.
