From: Department of Investigation

The Department of Investigation (DOI) has extended the time to respond to your FOIL request FOIL-2019-032-00082 for the following reasons:

You can expect a response on or about Wednesday, August 14, 2019.

Additional Information:

Dear Mr. Frank: This is in response to your Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request dated 6/9/2019. This is a partial response and an extension of your request. To make it easier, I have broken down your request into five items and responded to each. Please forgive the formatting--the OpenRecords platform is still in early-development and is comparatively primitive and reduces my message to a single block of text.

1. All available records of complaints submitted to the Department of Investigation, and all available records of actions related to those complaints from January 1, 2014, to the date this request is filed naming any New York City Marshals or their employees. Response: This record was provided on 7/19/2019. Please be advised that individual complaints are not provided because disclosure would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. See Public Officers Law §§ 87(2)(b) and 89(2)(b).

2. Additionally, any and all records of disciplinary actions taken against any New York City Marshals or their employees since January 1, 2014. Response: This record was provided on 7/19/2019. Please note that this record should also satisfy Item 3.

3. Additionally, any and all records of enforcement actions filed against any New York City Marshals or their employees since January 1, 2014. Response: This record was provided on 7/19/2019 (same record as that provided for Item 2).

4. Additionally, any and all records of investigative memoranda naming any New York City Marshals or their employees since January 1, 2014. Response: Please be advised that a search has located approximately 218 responsive records. By our estimation, it will take approximately 109 hours to collect, review, and redact the investigative memoranda— providing approximately 30 minutes to retrieve, scan, redact, and review each record.

5. Additionally, any and all records of “unusual incident” reports, memoranda, investigations, or notes, as defined by Section 1-10 of the NYC Marshal’s handbook, including but not limited to arrests, assaults, physical injuries, and/or the discovery of contraband, filed by any New York City Marshals, New York City marshal employees, or by DOI employees, pertaining to New York CIty Marshals, since January 1, 2014. Response: Please be advised that a search has located approximately 791 records. By our estimation, it will take approximately 105 hours to review and redact the incident reports—providing for approximately 8 minutes to review and redact each record.

Given the significant time required to comply with the remainder of your request, it would be beneficial if we could discuss your request and determine if, given these initial productions, whether the scope of your request can be refined.

To that end, please contact me directly at: Christopher Tellet Assistant General Counsel New York City Department of Investigation 80 Maiden Lane New York, NY 10038 (212) 806-5240 ctellet@doi.nyc.gov

From: Max Frank

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for your message and your work on this request - this is all very helpful.

Would be happy to discuss on the phone at your convenience (my cell is 917-359-7769). My first thought is whether we could trim the dates for points 4 and 5 from January 2017 to present - would that cut down the work time to something reasonable and not absurd?

Looking forward,
Max
