Ms. Alo,

Your request has been received, however the scope of your request is so large in nature that it will take many, many hours to compile and most likely cost thousands of dollars. At the very least each name would need to be vetted to ensure that each person was actually charged, as this facility accepts arrests from numerous law enforcement agencies. We have a responsibility to protect those whose names should not be released to the public for that reason.

I would like to discuss the matter further with you, however you have not provided a contact number. Please see my contact info at the bottom of this message.

From: Katlyn Alo

Hello Sarah,

Thank you for your response. I have reviewed the cost itemization, and it looks like the bulk of the labor is for redacting names. In Michigan, the names of arrestees are not exempted from public record, based on the ruling in Rataj v City of Romulus, which states that disclosure is warranted, even of arrest record, because governmental accountability outweighs individual privacy and names are not of a personal nature exempt from disclosure.

Additionally, I am not requesting any additional personal information, such as address. Please let me know what the cost itemization is without the cross-reference and redaction.

Thank you,
Katlyn
