I apologize for the delay in responding to your request. We had to generate a list comprising of nearly 1200 employees for our IT department to conduct as email search. That search is currently in progress and we anticipate receiving the results within the next three to four business days. You will be notified via email as soon as the search results become available.

Thank you for your patience.

Please find attached a single result for your inquiry into any communications using the words ‘juggalo’ or ‘juggalos.’ A review of all LMPD employee email boxes located one email that was received by Officer Jay Moss in calendar year 2010. The email was entitled ‘FL DC Gang Intelligence Newsletter’ and was sent by a Lamont Cooke who is not an employee of LMPD. Due to the length of time that has passed Officer Moss no longer has this email. Further, storage and retention schedules do not allow Louisville Metro Government to maintain or retrieve individual emails beyond a three month period.

If there are any further questions please feel free to contact me.
