From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, M.G.L. c.66, §10, I hereby request the following records:

An electronic copy of the daily administrative journals for July 1, 2015 through November 30, 2015 for all barracks.

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 calendar days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave

Dear Mr. Musgrave,

The Massachusetts Department of State Police ("Department") has received your public records request for logs from July 1, 2015, through November 30, 2015. As a courtesy, I write to notify you that your request has been assigned to me for review.

Be advised that:

* The Department may send you a good faith estimate for the cost of responding to your inquiry because, pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, a records custodian may charge and recover a fee for the time he or she spends searching for and segregating responsive material.

* Any response by the Department will be subject to the Public Records Law exemptions set forth in G.L. c. 4, sec. 7, cl. 26.

* Under the Public Records Law, every requester is treated equally. Thus, even a person who is the subject of the record is not granted any greater access right than any other person.

Please note that the Department has begun to process your request but it may take more than ten days. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call.

Your attention to this matter is appreciated.

Sincerely,

Jaclyn R. Zawada
