Status
Completed

Communications

From: Ben Hallman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Missouri Sunshine Law and the Missouri Public Records Law, I hereby request the following statistics:

1) The total number of firearms reported stolen to your department in 2015.

2) The total number of firearms reported stolen from motor vehicles to your department in 2015.

I submitted on July 21 and 22 requests for police reports related to the theft of firearms from motor vehicles and asking for the total number of automobile burglaries in 2015. If you have not already completed that request, please complete this one first if possible.

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Ben Hallman

From: Brown, Jamie S

Mr. Hallman:

Your request has been received. Please be advised it will take longer than 3 days and potentially an estimated 4 weeks due to volume to process and obtain information. Once I receive information related to your request from the unit I request it from, I will contact you regarding any applicable fees and delivery method preferred.

I am not showing I received a request related to a police report request on July 21st and 22nd. Was this sent to the Legal Office? In that request, you ask for police reports related to the theft of firearms. Are you wanting the actual reports, or just the report numbers related to these incidents? Please clarify at your earliest convenience.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you.

Mr. Hallman:

I have a report that was already generated which lists the number of Lost or Stolen Guns in two categories. One is for location not specified (all locations) and the other is from Vehicles only.

I can just send this to you if this will suffice as it's already generated. If you want stolen guns only, removing the lost guns, we would have to go through and generate a separate report. This will have a cost associated with it (I can get an estimate).

Just let me know. Thanks.

From: Ben Hallman

About how long would it take to process?

From: Brown, Jamie S

They advised about one hour. Our Application Development Section would have to write a new program to pull that information. Their hourly rate is $48.00 per hour.

The cost is just an estimate. It could be more or less, but that's their estimate.

From: Ben Hallman

Hi Jamie,

Can you go ahead and send me what you have, i.e, the sheet with lost and stolen guns? I might come back and ask for just stolen guns. We don't have a problem paying that amount; I'm more concerned about getting the information in time to meet our deadline.

From: Brown, Jamie S

Did you want them to go ahead and process that request for just stolen guns are did you want to wait and contact me to let me know?

Thanks.

From: Ben Hallman

Exactly what we were looking for. Thank you so much!

From: Brown, Jamie S

Will this satisfy this request then or do you need them to run the other report which is $48.00 for just stolen guns?

Thanks.

JB

From: Ben Hallman

Nope I think just this Thanks!

From: Brown, Jamie S

Thank you Jamie. A reporter working on a story related to these figures, Brian Freskos at The Trace, is going to contact you about getting some trend numbers related to the same.

From: Brown, Jamie S

Mr. Hallman:

Per Mr. Freskos, I am to send it to him or you after it is received. I just need someone to pick where they want it sent. Since you submitted the request, I'll let you decide where I should send it.

Thank you.
