Shotspotter data (Kansas City Police Department)

Todd Feathers filed this request with the Kansas City Police Department of Kansas City, MO.
Multi Request Shotspotter data


From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the The Missouri Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

1) A list, database, or comparable record of every alert that has been generated by the department's Shotspotter technology since January 1, 2016. The list/database should include, where possible, the date, time, location (address or latitude+longitude coordinates), single or multiple shot distinction, whether the shots were confirmed, and associated case number for each alert.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist and intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest. In the event you choose to impose fees, I request a detailed breakdown of the fees, including the hourly wage of each employ involved and an explanation justifying the employee hours required to fulfill the request.

Should you choose to reject this request or redact portions of it, I ask that you provide a detailed breakdown of the statutory exemptions and associated case law underlying your decision to withhold each/any portions from public review.

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.
