From: schellenberg


To Whom It May Concern:

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

1. Current records, maintained by department armorers and/or Use of Force instructors, depicting the types and specifications of all less lethal weapons approved for use under their direction and control.

2. Current records, maintained by department armorers and/or Use of Force instructors, depicting the types and specifications of all projectiles, canisters and other ordinance used in the approved launchers and/or systems under their direction and control.

For reference, I refer to the exact documents which are mentioned in IMPD General Order 1.8, VIII.A & VIII.B, but for which I have not been able to locate any publicly accessible copy via indy.gov. Posting these publicly, or sending a link to a copy already published, would also be an acceptable response.

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,

schellenberg

Your request will be forwarded to the relevant city or county agency for review and a determination of whether there are public records responsive to your request and, if so, whether those public records are disclosable to you. The city or county agency will contact you concerning your request and inform you whether there are public records responsive to your request, if all or part of those public records are not disclosable to you, and the statutory basis for any denial. Information pertaining to any copying fees that may be related to obtaining copies will be provided. Please Note: With respect to public records requests that include e-mail communications, we want to make you aware that these requests generally take longer than requests for other types of information.  First, the City/County receives a large number of requests for email communications, not just public records requests but also related to legal proceedings.  We rely upon our information technology agency to perform these searches and that agency runs these searches (based  upon reasonably particular search terms as set forth by the State Public Access Counselor) in the order in which the requests are received.  Once the email search is completed, there must also be a review of the content of the email communications to ensure that they are not only responsive to your request but also disclosable.  Finally, disclosable email communications will be produced after this review and if we do not disclose all or part of these email communications, we will provide the statutory bases for such denials as required under the APRA.

The APRA requires public agencies to produce responsive and disclosable public records, should they exist, within a reasonable time based upon the circumstances.   Please allow the agency time to review and process your request.  Depending on the nature of the request, this may be several days.

If you have not received any response and at least 10 days have passed since submission, feel free to contact the Public Access Counselor to check the status.  Additionally, if you have general questions about the Indiana Access to Public Records Act, please contact the Public Access Counselor at any time.

You may reach the Public Access Counselor at 317.327.4055 or PAC@indy.gov. (mailto:PAC@indy.gov)

Thank you,

City of Indianapolis and Marion County

Mr. Lissner,

Thank you for your acknowledgment of my request. In your response, you indicated a request which is different from the one I sent in. I am assuming this was a mistake, possibly just a copy and paste error. Is this still the correct reference number which you provided?

Thanks!

Good afternoon,
Will you please specify or clarify exactly what records you are requesting from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department?
Thank you,

Paralegal, IMPD

From: schellenberg

Thanks for your response. I just want to check that you have received my original request. To be clear, I am requesting specific documents which are referenced in the IMPD General Orders at the exact citation I provided. If there is something about that which needs clarification, could you please let me know what exactly is not clear, because I do not know how I can state my request clearer than I already have.

Thanks!

Schellenberg N/A--
I noted in our portal (I am one of the administrators) that you attempted to send a message but you addressed it to our system email address--you need to log in to the portal using your email address and the password you created to send a message.
Those system emails do not get delivered to anyone--it is just a fluke that I saw it. I will attempt to get your message to the IMPD but you should also attempt to message them direclty.
