Shawnee County Sheriff COA (Shawnee County Sheriff's Department)

Richard & Janet Eater filed this request with the Shawnee County Sheriff's Department of Shawnee County, KS.
Multi Request Shawnee County Sheriff COA


From: Richard & Janet Eater

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the The Kansas Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

A current list of all UAS/UAV/RPV/drone Certificates of Waiver or Authorization (COA), including date of application, name of applicant, waiver status and date of expiration filed by the Shawnee County Sheriff's Department and Shawnee County Government as a whole. A COA is an authorization issued by the Air Traffic Organization to a public operator for a specific UA activity

COA is considered to be a matter of public record by Kansas Statutes and in accordance with precedent KSA 45-221.12 does not make them exempted from release.

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.
