This email is in response to your request to provide information and documents for any and all contracts, agreements, memorandums, policies, etc.. related to the acquisition, use, or policy and procedure concerning social media surveillance software, equipment, or the like. The Sioux Falls Police Department has no social media surveillance software, providers, and none of the above mentioned.
