Hi, thanks for sending the arrest records and civilian complaint records. However, the data you've sent doesn't include my request for:
1. The total number of police uses of force in 2018, broken down by type of force used (i.e. number of uses of tasers, number of uses of baton, etc.)
2. The total number of use of force complaints reported by civilians in 2018
3. The total number of use of force complaints reported by civilians that were sustained in 2018

None of the use of force data is provided in your response. Additionally, the civilian complaints reports included in your response do not include a breakdown for the number of use of force complaints reported and the number sustained in 2018. Please send these records.

Thanks!

Sam
