Re: FOIR # 19-3432 Extension
The Illinois State Police acknowledges receipt of your FOIA request. (See attached request). A response to your request is due November 12, 2019. However, additional time is needed to respond to your request. In accordance with Section 3(e) of the Freedom of Information Act (5 ILCS 140/3 (e)), the response due date is being unilaterally extended to November 19, 2019. The basis for this extension is as follows:
_____ The requested records are stored in whole or in part at another location.
_____ The request requires the collection of a substantial number of records.
_____ The request is stated in categorical terms which requires an extensive search for the records requested.
__X __ The requested records have not yet been located and additional time is needed to complete the search.
__X__ The requested records require examination and evaluation to determine if the documents are exempt from disclosure and/or must be redacted.
__X__ The requested records cannot be provided within the prescribed time frame without causing an undue burden or interfering with the operation of the Department.
_____ Consultation is needed with another public body in order to respond to the request.
Note - Extending the deadline to the above-referenced date does not necessarily mean a response and/or public records will be provided to you by that date. FOIA requests are reviewed in the order in which they are received. Your patience is appreciated
