To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Indiana Access to Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
Documentation describing the email system(s) used by your agency, including the procedures and methods for performing searches of the email system.
I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the government and its activities, with some reaching over 100,000 readers. As such, as I have a reasonable expectation of publication and my editorial and writing skills are well established. In addition, I discuss and comment on the files online and make them available through non-profits such as the Internet Archive and MuckRock, disseminating them to a large audience. While my research is not limited to this, a great deal of it, including this, focuses on the activities and attitudes of the government itself. As such, it is not necessary for me to demonstrate the relevance of this particular subject in advance.
As my primary purpose is to inform about government activities by reporting on it and making the raw data available, I request that fees be waived.
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.
Good morning, Ms. Best,
You recently contacted the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) regarding the email system used by the agency, as well as the procedures and methods for performing searches of that system. Please be advised that IMPD does not perform email searches, as that is done by our Information Services Agency (ISA).
I have forwarded your request to that department and they will be reaching out to you directly to provide you with a response. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Office of the Chief
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department
