KRS 61.872(3)(b) requires a requestor that lives or has their principal place of business outside of the county where the requested records are located to precisely describe records that are readily available. Your request is for 'Police complaints filed by civilians.' "A description is sufficiently precise for purposes of records access by mail if it describes the records in definite, specific and unequivocal terms." 13-ORD-077, p. 2, quoting 98-ORD-17. "A request must be 'specific enough so that a public agency can identify and locate the records in question.'" 18-ORD-068, p.2. quoting 13-ORD-077, p. 3. Your request for 'Police complaints filed by civilians' is not sufficiently precise as your request implicates thousands of documents for an undetermined period of time. To gather, review and make necessary personal privacy redactions would take an extraordinary amount of time and thus, would be an unreasonable burden on this agency in order to comply.
