Mr. Lipton:

After review by the Sheriff's Office, your request was forwarded to our
office because the Sheriff's Office does not maintain the information
you have requested. Many of the documents you have requested are
maintained by CCA, and I am forwarding the request to their counsel.
The request does not specify a time frame and we will need the time
frame for your request.

Beryl:

I apologize for the delay. I printed out your email for follow-up, and just found it in another file. I’ll try to give this proper attention first thing Monday. Just on its face, this appears to be a voluminous request even to the extent of determining how much time it will take to fulfill the actual request.

Please feel free to follow-up with me on Monday by email or phone if you deem necessary.

Mr. Lipton:

In my last email to you, I failed to mention that it appears some of you have requested should come directly from CCA Silverdale, and you will need to forward a separate request to CCA for that.

What records have you not received. These appear to be form emails and I’m not sure which records you are still wanting.

Please let me know what you need and I’ll try to facilitate.
