Good afternoon Mr. Mocek,

This concerns your PDR, P2015-7145 that was filed on 12/2/15 for the After Action Report related to “black Friday” and Tree Lighting ceremony. There appears to be some confusion regarding this PDR (P2015-7145) – requesting the AAR; and P2015-7146 – requesting the IAP for the same incident. In P2015-7146, the IAP was provided on 3/7/2015. That PDR is now closed.

This PDR, P2015-7145, requested the AAR. Command review of the AAR was just completed on 3/16/2016 and was provided to the Legal Unit today; as such, I need additional time to review it and get it ready for release.

I anticipate providing you with the AAR on or about March 31, 2016. I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards,
Katie
