RE:  Public Disclosure Request#: P009916-021517

Dear ,

The purpose of this communication is to provide a status update regarding your request.
The Seattle Police Department needs additional time to respond to your request due to the following:
A search for responsive records requested from the team that handles event action reports returned no responsive records.  Based on information provided to me by that department, I require additional time to contact the communications department to determine if there were any calls related to the event, and any recordings related to those calls.

At this time, we anticipate having a response/installment to you on or about 6/21/2017.
I apologize for the delay, but SPD is experiencing turnover in staff, which has resulted in the need for additional time to process requests.

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.

RE:  Public Disclosure Request#: P009916-021517

Dear ,
This is to inform you that SPD is revising its estimatedresponse time for your requestuntil  July 28, 2017. Washington Public Records Act, Chapt. 42.56 RCW, (“PRA”)allows an agency to revise and extend it estimated response time, as long asthe extension is reasonable. RCW 42.56.520; WAC 44-14-04003(7). SPD currentlyhas more than 550 open public records requests. An agency shall not distinguishamong persons requesting records. RCW 42.56.080. As a result, SPD mustreasonably allocate its available resources equitably to all requesters. Due tounanticipated employee vacancies, SPD must redistribute the current workloadresulting in temporary delays until those vacancies are filled. We apologize for any inconvenience this maycause.

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.
