Communications

From: Aileen Johnson

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Indiana Access to Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Use of force data with detail summaries for all use of force incidents from 2008-2016. Please provide the following details for each incident:

Date (year, month, day) of the incident, subject race, officer race, type of force used, whether there was subject injury, and whether there was officer injury.

I prefer csv spreadsheet format (or pdf) where each row represents an incident. Here is an example of the data I'm looking for (https://www.dallasopendata.com/Public-Safety/Police-2015-Response-to-Resistance/594v-2cnd).

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.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 7 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

A. Johnson

Hello. Public information requests must be done by completing a request form. Here is the link to the City Law Department. Click on Law Department and then request for records. You will need to send the form to the law department. Once they send it back to me, I can begin to have the records division work on your request which will incur fees. Thank you. http://www.gohammond.com/document-central/
