Thank you for replying back to our FOIL request,

We have a few follow-up questions based on your response:
1. Is there a particular reason as to why you do not keep records within your jurisdiction?
2. Is the reason applicable to murder cases? In other words, do you not file murder cases within your jurisdiction?

Thank you in advance for your anticipated participation in the matter.
