From: Christopher Philippo

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New York State Freedom of Information Law (1977 N.Y. Laws ch. 933), I hereby request the following records:

The police department manual for the State University of New York at Buffalo.

("Because each police department is independently operated, each employs their own manual of procedures; a manual of procedures is a standard feature in any institution by no more so than within a police department. Yet, SUNY police department --- SUNY --- yet some SUNY police departments do not have a manual of procedures. This means that a police office has little or no direction as to how the university wishes to address a specific problem, thus liability issues arise.”
James Lyman, Executive Director of Council 82 for the New York State Law Enforcement Officers Union. (113-114). http://www.nysenate.gov/files/SUNY%20testimony%20pt.%202.PDF
)

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. 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.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Christopher Philippo
