To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Florida Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:
Copies of any internal manuals, instructions, forms or checksheets for how the law enforcement agency processes records requests.
I am a member of the news media and request classification as such. I have previously written about the government and its activities, with some reaching over 100,000 readers. As my primary purpose is to inform about government activities by reporting on it and making the raw data available, I request that fees be waived.
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
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.
Attached is the City of Miami's administrative policy on processing public records. I will check to see if MPD has anything in addition to this policy in terms of standard operating procedures or departmental policies.
In terms of forms or checksheets, our department utilizes the GovQA (https://govqa.com/) program to track the records requests we receive.
