Mark,

Below is a PIA request. The same request was made to DC. If you are not
familiar with MuckRock, here is a link: https://www.muckrock.com/about/.
The Safe Nation Collaborative has no website that I can find, but their
president is featured here:
http://www.baltimoresun.com/features/baltimore-insider-blog/bs-ae-rabia-chaudry-profile-20141218-story.html/.

I am unable to locate any responsive records without doing an email
search. And based on discussions I have had, I do not expect that we will
locate any responsive records (nobody has heard of the organization in
question). Below that is my proposed response. Can you let me know if the
response is acceptable or if anything should be changed?

Thank you again......Doug

Mr. Mizra,

This email is in response to your Maryland Public Information Act request
dated February 10, 2016, in which you requested information related to the
Safe Nations Collaborative.

I am writing to you today to provide you with an update. We have conducted
a search of all non-electronic correspondence and we are unable to locate
any letters, and other written communication between Maryland State Police
employees and between the Maryland State Police and other governmental
partners concerning Safe Nation Collaborative. Nor were we able to locate
any letters or other written communication between Maryland State Police
and the Safe Nation Collaborative.

In addition, we have contacted our Education & Training Division and they
do not have any briefs, memos, directives, PowerPoint slides, guidelines or
other documents concerning the training with Safe Nation Collaborative. In
addition, no employee with whom I have discussed your request is familiar
with the Safe Nation Collaborative.

To complete your request, we must conduct a search of our email system and
a fee will be required. Our email system is maintained by the Maryland
Department of Information Technology (DoIT). DoIT charges a minimum fee of
$100 to conduct an email search. This cost must be paid before the email
search is conducted.

We believe that we will be able to complete an email search within 30 days
of the date we received your request, but this will depend on how soon we
receive your payment and the amount of time DoIT requires to conduct the
search. If we are able to complete your request more quickly, you will
receive a response sooner. We do not yet know whether all of the records
are subject to inspection, but if any are to be withheld, our response will
explain the reason for that.

Based on our preliminary review of your request, there will be an
additional fee involved that will depend on the number of responsive
records and the time and hourly rates of the individual staff and attorneys
who must conduct the review. In addition, there would be a copy charge of
$.25 per page should you want copies of the responsive records. Upon
receiving the responsive records, we will be able to provide you with an
estimated cost for the final review.

Please contact me to let me know if you would like to proceed with the
search. If so, I will provide you with the information needed so you may
submit your payment.
