Dear Mr. Mocek,

This letter is in response to your public disclosure request dated August 29, 2013 and received by the Seattle Police Public Disclosure Unit on August 29, 2013 for "E-mail messages sent from and received by addresses in the seattleshield.org domain, including but not limited to those addressed to and from info@seattleshield.org, which among other possible roles, is frequently used to post to the [Seattle Shield mailing list][1].

Please find the attached responsive document, which include all messages created since your previous request P2013-1725 (which is currently under appeal).

The records were received by SPD Public Disclosure Unit in paper format. We have scanned the documents in a searchable PDF format.

Some redactions have been applied throughout the documents pursuant to RCW 42.56.10 and/or other statutes,

a.) Intelligence Information: Specific intelligence information which is essential to effective law enforcement is not disclosable. RCW 42.56.240(1). and/or RCW 43.43.856. Explanation: Disclosure would reveal law enforcement techniques, capabilities, limitations, and the extent of law enforcement knowledge which would jeopardize investigations/prosecutions and/or assist individuals in criminal activity.

We have not prepared a detailed exemption log for records because only limited information has been redacted from the responsive records. The information normally provided in an exemption log, such as title, author, recipient, subject, and number of pages, is readily ascertainable by looking at the redacted records.

This concludes the Seattle Police Department’s response to your request.

You may file a written appeal with the Chief of Police within ten (10) business days from the date of this letter. Please include your name and address and a copy of this letter together with a brief statement identifying the basis of the appeal. Please mail or deliver your appeal to:

Chief of Police
Seattle Police Department
PO Box 34986
Seattle, WA 98124-4986
