Mr Davis,

If you had sent me this request earlier I completely missed it in my emails. I am no longer our Records Custodian. Julie Laundrie now does that and I am including her in this email.

Lieutenant John Radovan
City of Madison Police Department
Officer In Charge- First Detail
(608) 266-4730

From: Madison Police Department

Mr. Davis,

I believe these are the policies you are looking for. They are all available on our website. When you are seeking general policies such as these I recommend you check the website first. Because of the time lag with this request, I will not charge you. However in the future I will charge you for information I have to pull and email you from our website. You also may want to communicate to Muckrock their custodian information is wrong, they have been notified before. Emails sent to pdrecords@cityofmadison.com<mailto:pdrecords@cityofmadison.com> are best - thanks.

This is full release and this request is fulfilled. Let me know if you have any questions. Julie
