Ms. Gaillot,

I received your FOIA request for all records mentioning or relating to the show "Live PD" and A&E Network. The language of your request is extremely broad, and as is will take many many hours of work. Before I proceed, will you please give me a call so we can speak briefly and I can make sure I understand exactly what it is you're requesting? Please call at your convenience. My number is (803) 497-7290.

Fee Schedule:
$26.00 per hour for research and review
$.15 per printed page
$5.00 per CD/DVD
$36.00 per box if records needed must be retrieved from archives.

NOTICE TO ALL REQUESTORS OF RECORDS: Pursuant to S.C. Code Section 30-2-50, obtaining or using
public records under the Freedom of Information Act for the commercial solicitation of any person in
this state is prohibited by law and subject to criminal penalty.

Hey Ms. Gaillot, just wanted to make sure I didn't miss your call. We can correspond by email if you'd rather. You request lists this as the preferred email address.

Hello Mr. All,

Gave you a call yesterday, but perhaps email would be best. Thanks for getting back to me and I apologize for not responding sooner. I'd like to narrow down my request to contracts, MOUs, and talking points about "Live PD" between A&E Network and the RCSD. I am also interested to know if you are able to do email searches. I can give you a call later today to answer any questions you may have and talk about this further.

Thanks,
Ann

That really helps narrow it down.

Email accounts must be searched individually. There are almost 1000 personnel in this department. To get every email about Live PD in RCSD records, I would have to conduct a separate search of each account for the particular words or phrases. The time to do that is billed at the hourly rate.

I did see a call from an unknown number, but to be honest, I ignored it because the calls I get from random zip codes are these spam recorded calls, so I thought it was one of those! Give me a call this afternoon at 803-497-7290. Thanks!
