The Shawnee County Sheriff's Office is in receipt of your records request for 911 rules, policies and procedures. Currently the Sheriff's Office is in the process of updating its communications policies. The current policies are lengthy. Unless I hear from you otherwise, I will prepare a cost estimate and let you know the amount.

Hi there,

Thanks so much for your message. Preparation of the cost estimate would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes,

The December 2015 request was for copies of the 911 Management meeting minutes. These records were held by the county clerk’s office and were not in the possession of the Sheriff’s Office. This immediate records request (for 911 dispatch policies) was dated August 26, 2016 and acknowledged within the three days following receipt of the request. Your request consists of 71 pages. The cost for your request is $32.50 ($.25 x71, $5.75 mailing, $9.00 clerk time). Please remit $32.50 made payable to Shawnee County. Upon receipt of said payment, the Sheriff’s Office will mail the requested copies to the address provided.

From: Richard Eater

I would like to appeal this request. Also I have the following questions:

Is there not an electronic copy of these available?
What is the break-down in pricing that was arrived at to charge the amount listed in the previous requests.

From: Boddington, Matthew

The records you requested were not stored electronically and hard copies were made. There were 71 pages. As I indicated to you earlier, the policies you requested are no longer in effect, having been recently updated. The pricing was based upon the fee schedule used by the Attorney General. 71 pages at .25 per page($17.75), mailing $.50 for the first five pages and $.25 for each 5 page increment ($5.75,) and $9.00 for clerk time for a total of $32.50. If you still desire these records, please remit the above stated amount made payable to the Shawnee County Sheriff’s Office.
