*CLARIFICATION TO OPEN RECORDS REQUEST*

To Whom It May Concern:

Please consider this message to be a clarification to this open records request. This request seeks all emails specified above regardless of whether the emails had been deleted by the aforementioned Milwaukee Police Department employees. The Milwaukee Police Department is required to preserve and retain all emails in accordance with the Wisconsin Open Records law and Department's Retention Schedule. Because the Milwaukee Police Department is mandated to preserve and retain all emails, including deleted emails, any emails that may have been deleted by any individual MPD employee from their MPD email account inbox are still accessible Department's technology department. Therefore, this request is seeking all emails & attachments sent/received by the above listed individuals that said individuals may have been deleted from their MPD email accounts. In order to avoid any confusion, an example of this clarification and the emails sought is as follows:

"If Milwaukee Police Officer Andrew Wagner deleted an email from his MPD account that he sent/received that related to MPD Investigation #162180075/Jason Steven Jankowski, then I am requesting that the Milwaukee Police Department produce copies of said deleted emails/attachments as they are still in the possession of MPD and accessible by the Department's Office of Technology."

Please acknowledge receipt of this message and reply if further information is needed concerning this clarification regarding deleted emails or this request as a whole. Thank you for your time.
