Multi Request Shotspotter data
Est. Completion None
No Responsive Documents


From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Louisiana Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

1) A list, database, or comparable record of every alert that has been generated by the department's Shotspotter technology since January 1, 2016. The list/database should include, where possible, the date, time, location (address or latitude+longitude coordinates), single or multiple shot distinction, whether the shots were confirmed, and associated case number for each alert.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist and intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest. In the event you choose to impose fees, I request a detailed breakdown of the fees, including the hourly wage of each employ involved and an explanation justifying the employee hours required to fulfill the request.

Should you choose to reject this request or redact portions of it, I ask that you provide a detailed breakdown of the statutory exemptions and associated case law underlying your decision to withhold each/any portions from public review.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Hi there

Your first City of New Orleans record request (request number #21-3564) has been submitted.
It is currently unpublished and is not available for the general public to view.

**FEE UPDATE 6/15/2020**New Online Fee Payment Feature!We now support online payment of fees with credit or debit card. 

***UPDATE 3/16/2020*** 


Due to the recent mandates from the Governor and the Mayor requiring persons to stay at home, City government on-site staffing is reduced and services limited to reduce the spread of COVID-19 (commonly referred to as Coronavirus).  Accordingly, please be advised that the City may not be able to fulfill your request at this time due to reduced staffing.  We appreciate your patience and ask that you visit for the most up-to-date information on the City’s response to the COVID-19. 

 ***UPDATE 12/13/2019***


In light of the City Hall cyber attack on Friday, December 13th, 2019, please be advised that it may take longer than usual to fulfill your request. Please note that many records remain unavailable while City network infrastructure, systems, and applications are offline and inaccessible. If the records you request are not available due to the cyber attack, we will close your request and advise that you resubmit your request at a future date. We appreciate your patience while the Office of Information Technology and Innovation works to restore all City operations to normal.


Thank you, the City of New Orleans Law Department has received your Public Records Law request.

Your request has been forwarded to the City department or office which is the custodian of the records you requested. The custodian will determine whether responsive records exist, and if so, compile the records for your review.

Please refer to the due date located on the individual "Request #" page for an estimate of when your records, if any, will be available.  This estimated due date may be adjusted depending on the nature of your request.

Note also that records may be in active use at this time and therefore not available for immediate review.  Additionally, in accordance with the Louisiana Public Records Law, the City of New Orleans strives to promptly release all records which contain only public information and are not otherwise exempt from the Public Records Law. The City must balance its commitment to open access with its legal obligation to review public records for such exceptions and exemptions prior to release.

As soon as the custodian notifies our office that the records have been compiled and are available for review, we will notify you to schedule a mutually agreeable time to review or purchase copies of the records.  Thank you for your request, and we look forward to working with you to provide public records in a fair and efficient manner.

Thank you,

City of New Orleans
