To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Florida's Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

All data, statistics, or reports from the year 2015 regarding incidents involving firearms, including but not limited to:

Any and all policies, procedures, directives, memorandums, and any other guiding materials regarding matters pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, including, but not limited to, the following:
• policies and procedures on the issuance of firearms permits and licenses. (Please note that this point is not a request for the identities of individual permit or license holders, but, rather, is a request for governmental policies and parameters regarding the process and regulations by which one may obtain either a permit or a license. If separate strictures exist for each, provision of both would be greatly appreciated.)
• policies and procedures on the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• any and all available policies and procedures regarding local firearms policies. Please provide all such materials that alter or supplement departmental procedures.
• policies and procedures regarding the sale and purchase of firearms. Please include all materials regarding the appropriate qualifications for the sale or purchase of firearms. Please include materials for particular venues, if available, including but not limited to the sale and purchase of firearms at gun shows.
• policies and procedures regarding the transfer, either out-of-state or between individuals, of firearms.
Please include all available segregable data.

• the issuance of firearms permits and licenses.
• the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• the sale and purchase of firearms.
• the transfer, either out-of-state or between individuals, of firearms.

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.

Please limit your search to all records from the year 2015.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request.

Vanessa,

I am writing in reference to March 8th, 2017 letter requesting firearms
related homicides and assaults during the year 2015. I apologize for such a
lengthy delay in providing this information. The party that can obtain the
information for me was out on leave, I will have a response for you soon.
Again, thank you for your patience.

This information has been forwarded to our evidence custodian who will be working on the request. The last email I received dated April 24th, 2017 had a revision on their request for information.

From: Jeannie Roberts

I am in receipt of your requests, and our evidence custodian is attempting to complete your request. We have recently gone to a new system and all of the information you are seeking will be manually researched and not in the computer. As I stated it will take some time and there will be a charge related to the request. I have forwarded this email to our evidence custodian and have spoken with her. I am sorry but I do not have a time that the information will be completed and sent to you. I am providing my phone number and our evidence custodians name and email address. Please feel free to contact me via phone or email. Again, we are making every effort to fullfil this request for you. My number is 352-463-4640 and our evidence custodian is Tammy Hale and email thale@gcso.us.

Thank You,

Ms. Nelson,

I am the Evidence Custodian for the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office in
Trenton, Florida. I have received your request and am making every attempt
to fulfill it in the timeliest manner possible. Please know that we are a
very small agency and I am the only evidence employee with many
responsibilities and we are currently undergoing an agency software change
which is consuming an exorbitant amount of time.

Based on your request, it is necessary to conduct a manual search of various
records which will take several man-hours. At this moment, it is impossible
to inform you of anticipated costs due to the nature of the search for this
information. If you are willing/able to pare down your request, this would
certainly expedite the receipt of information. Your current request will
be addressed should a modification be impossible. Further, would it be
possible to email an example of format you would like to see the information
in? This would also be very beneficial and help expedite the process.
Your patience in receiving the information requested is greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

Tammy Hale
