To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Maine Freedom of Access Act ("FOAA"), I hereby request the following records:
This request has to do with the Ballistic Armored Tactical Transport, commonly known as the B.A.T.T., which is manufactured by the Armored Group LLC. I ask for:
-Contractual documents. Examples of this are invoices, purchases orders, contracts, loan agreements, procurement documents etc.
-Records of communication with the Armored Group LLC, which has a domain of @armoredcars.com. This correspondence from the department would likely be coming from either the chief of police or a head of procurement.
-Training and/or usage guidelines or policy for this vehicle.
-Any utilization logs for this vehicle.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by 1 M.R.S.A. § 408(6). The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
