To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Texas Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

2. the total number of civilian complaints alleging any form of law enforcement misconduct that were reported and the total number sustained, separated by year (for example, 8 complaints in 2016, 2 complaints sustained in 2017, 4 complaints in 2018, 1 complaint sustained in 2019, etc.)

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
