Communications

From: Ben Hallman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to RCW Ch. 42.56 (Public Records Act), I hereby request the following records:

I submitted a publics records request earlier this month and received the following response:

"Thank you for your interest in obtaining a public record of the City of Seattle. Your request has been received and is being processed. Your request was received in this office on July 21, 2016 and given the reference number O003892-072116 for tracking purposes."

I would now like to narrow my request, given the quantity of documents that my original request is like to produce. Instead of requesting incident reports for every larceny from a motor vehicle in 2015, we are now only requesting reports for larcenies from motor vehicles in which a firearm was stolen in 2015.

We still want see all the information contained in the report, including, but not limited to, the time and location of each incident; the criminal's method of entry; the make and model of the vehicle; descriptions of what was stolen and where from inside the vehicle each item was stolen; the victims' names, ages and contact information; and the narrative summary of what happened.

Please also provide the TOTAL number of larcenies from motor vehicles that were reported to your department in 2015, no matter what, if anything, was stolen. All we need here is a number.

If this data is collated in a digital file or database, providing the results of a search query that yields this information would be an acceptable substitute to physical copies of the reports.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Ben Hallman
