Dear Josh Thompson,

Hello Mr. Thompson,
This acknowledges receipt of your public disclosure request P024304-022618  received on February 26, 2018.
I ran an email search of all SPD mailboxes from 1/1/2010 to 02/23/2018, using keywords "antifa" OR "anti-fascists" OR "anarchists" OR "anti-racists" OR "black bloc" OR "anti-police" OR "black clothing" OR "anti-capitalist", and received 80,694  hits. I am able to review about 100 emails in an hour, and can dedicate about 1 hour a week to your request. With that, I estimate that I will be able to complete of your request in approximately the email portion 17 years.

In the interim, we will endeavor to respond to portions of your request that do not require clarification. At this time, SPD anticipates that it will be able to provide
a first installment of records on or about 4/11/2018. However, please note that this time estimate may change depending on any clarification you provide and as we continue to process your request.   If we do not hear from you within 30 days regarding the requested clarification, SPD will be unable to respond to the portion of your request that requires clarification.
Please note: I will not download the email search and begin reviewing the emails until I receive confirmation that you are requesting those records. I can also run a new email search
if you would like to narrow the SPD mailboxes searched, add keywords, or narrow your time frame.

If you have any questions, you may send a message using the Police Records Request Center or call the Public Disclosure Desk at 206-684-5481.
