Re:  Public Records Disclosure Request No. B000298-082420
This email acknowledges receipt of your request for video footage from March 21, 2019 from car 19 including correspondence between Seattle Police Department and Sound Transit.

We received your request on August 24, 2020. Sound Transit offices are currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are able to work remotely, however, with limited resources. Given the current COVID situation, our staffs’ workload, and the number of requests we are currently handling, we estimate it will take another one to two weeks to identify and gather responsive records. We will contact you once we have completed our search. If we are able to provide responsive records sooner, or if we need more time to complete your request, we will let you know. Sincerely,

Nakita Lacroix
Legal Project Coordinator
