To Whom It May Concern:

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

This request is limited to reports generated on or after October 1, 2020, through the present date.

I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain.

Mr. Steinbaugh,

I don’t have a way to generate a report based on one particular charge. I did however run our press arrest log report for the requested time frame and attached it to this email for you. This report will show all charges.
