From: Curtis Waltman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, ยง10, I hereby request the following records:

This request has a date range of January 1st 2013 to the date this request is processed.

All policies, rules, and regulations regarding the entering of homes. This is not just a request for policies regarding when officers can enter homes, with a warrant or without, although that too is included, but this is a request for information on the regulations regarding how police can do that, what they can and cannot do.

-All complaints the Department has received in the time frame noted above from citizens who had their homes entered by officers. That is to say, this is a request for complaints regarding domicile entrance by police.

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 the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. 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.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Curtis Waltman
