To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:
Financial records and receipts for all Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture Equitable Sharing Program revenue and expenditures for FY2011, FY2012 and FY2013. Such records are required under the 2009 Equitable Sharing Guide and should be easily accessible.
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.
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.
The Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council serves as a support service to the requesting agency, and as such, does not benefit in any manner from any asset forfeiture, etc. Metro has received exactly zero dollars from this program over the years.
As an aside, I have stepped down from my position with MetroLEC. Any further communications can be forwarded to Chief Kenneth Berkowitz, the current President of the organization.
Chief of Police
