To Whom It May Concern:

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

All complaints filed between May 25, 2020 and September 1, 2020 against any Rapid Response Team sergeant in the Portland Police Bureau.

In the event that there are fees, 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.
