To Whom It May Concern:

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

Copies of your Agency's social media monitoring policies and guidelines, as well as any assessments of its privacy or legal implications.

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.

Sincerely,

Emma Best

From: Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department

Good afternoon, Ms. Best,

I am writing to confirm receipt of your submitted request for public records which was received by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department ("IMPD"). I do however, a clarification request, please. When you refer to our agency's "social media monitoring policies and guidelines..." are you referring to our General Orders in reference to employee social media usage, or something else? I want to make sure I understand your request.

Sincerely,

I apologize for the delayed response. Information about guidelines for employee social media use would certainly be appreciated, however my main interest is in the monitoring, scraping, search or use of external social media accounts for law enforcement purposes.
