As we are able under the state of emergency, the City will review your request to determine if it has responsive records.  The City will then gather an estimate of the costs to provide copies of requested public records for which the City does not claim an exemption from disclosure.  The City is permitted to charge its actual costs to provide records.  Fees include research time to locate and analyze the requested records, even if no records are located or if the requested records are determined to be exempt from disclosure.

You can monitor the progress of your request at the link below.  Thank you for using the Portland Public Records Request Center.

Hi there,

In the response copied here, no where do I mention anything related to federal immigration law. The Air Support Unit is a division of the Portland Police Bureau as indicated on it's website here:

https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/article/250326

I, again, am not interested in anything related to federal immigration law. What I am seeking to understand is the following:
- What type of equipment PPB has purchased for its Air Support Unit from 2017-2020 year to date.
- What, if any, modifications were made to the aircraft or additional technology added outside of the manufacturer's original specifications.

Please let me know there is any additional clarification I can provide for this request.

Than you,
Matt Duran
