Hello,
I just need some clarification. In the form you sent me it states that Hennipen County Sherriff's Department takes FOIA requests via e-mail. Are you saying that unless I complete the provided form you will not process my request? For purposes of tracking and organization I would prefer if I could have my request processed via e-mail.
Thank you for your time.
Curtis Waltman

Hello,
That is great news. Thank you! I filled out the request and downloaded it and went to send it but it seems that when I download it the content I wrote disappears. It is nearing the end of my working day here in Massachusetts, but I will continue trying to format it tomorrow unless you feel that you can proceed without the form. I will say that nothing I have said in the form is different than what I have requested here. Thank you very much for your time.
Best,
Curtis Waltman
