Dear Ms. Nason/MuckRock News,

The Pasco Sheriff's Office is in receipt of your public records request dated February 17, 2017 (attached below for your reference). Please be advised that the policies you have requested regarding revocation of firearms permits and licenses, sale and purchase of firearms, transfer of firearms, and data regarding matters pertaining to firearms acquisition, licensure, use and transfer are not maintained by the Pasco Sheriff's Office. Therefore, no such records can be provided by our agency pursuant to that portion of your request. Regarding your request for all data, statistics, or reports regarding incidents involving firearms from 2015 to present, including but not limited to firearm-related homicides and firearm-related assaults, please be advised that our agency has located 535 reports responsive to your request. Each report is an estimated 10 pages, for a total of estimate of 5,350 pages at $0.15 per page, for a total cost estimate for copies of $802.50. The estimated labor associated with this request is 16 hours to pull, review, copy and make any necessary statutory redactions. The labor cost is $11.00 hour, for a total estimated cost of $176.00. Therefore, total good-faith estimate for your request is $978.50. Our agency will require a pre-payment of 50% of the good faith estimate as a deposit before any work is commenced to process your request. Please provide payment to the Pasco Sheriff's Office in the amount of $489.25, and send to my attention at the address below. After the deposit is received, and all work is completed to process your request, if the total cost amount exceeds the good-faith estimate of $978.50, you must pay the difference and the records will be provided to you. If the total cost is lower than this amount, then a refund will be issued and the records provided to you.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Hi,

Rather than the full reports, could your agency provide me with the Uniform Crime Report given to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for the year 2015?

Thank you,
