To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Colorado Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any and all policies, procedures, directives, memorandums, and any other guiding materials regarding matters pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, including, but not limited to, the following:
• policies and procedures on the issuance of firearms permits and licenses. (Please note that this point is not a request for identities of individual permit/license holders, but is rather a request for governmental policies and parameters regarding the process and regulations by which one may obtain a license or permit. If separate strictures exist for each, provision of both would be greatly appreciated.)
• policies and procedures on the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• any and all available policies and procedures regarding local firearms policies. Please provide all such materials that alter or supplement departmental procedures.

• the issuance of firearms permits and licenses.
• the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• the suspension of firearms permits and licenses.
• the renewal of firearms permits and licenses.
• incidents involving the use of a firearm.
If various policies or reports exist dependent on the type of firearm, provision of all applicable materials would be greatly appreciated. Should they be voluminous, provision of materials on rolling basis would be greatly appreciated.
Should your agency believe that any additional policies, procedures, reports or other analysis pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, transfer, deaths, incidents, or any related issues may reside with another agency or agencies, indication of such agencies would be greatly appreciated.
Please notify us if further clarification is necessary.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

Dear Ms. Curtis,

The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office (“PCSO”) has received your request for various records relating to the issuance of firearms permits and licenses, as fully described in your letter dated July 19, 2016. The letter was received by the PCSO on July 25, 2016.

Your request for “incidents involving the use of a firearm” is overly broad and vague. As it is written, this request could be interpreted to include every investigatory report that the PCSO has ever created where a firearm was used. It would take an inordinate amount of time and resources to fulfill the request. Would it be possible for you to narrow your request for incidents involving the use of a firearm?

Staff was able to gather records responsive to the other items requested in your letter. The PCSO charges $15.00 per hour for search and retrieval fees beyond the first hour. It took staff 2 hours to compile the documents you have requested. Please remit payment to the Pueblo County Attorney’s Office at the address below by check payable to Pueblo County in the amount of $15.00 at your earliest convenience. Upon receipt of your payment the records will be emailed to you.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Additionally, please let me know if you remain interested in pursuing your request for records of incidents that involve the use of a firearm.

From: Pueblo County Sheriff's Office

A fix is required to perfect the request.
