From: Amelia McDonell-Parry

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Maryland Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records for every sworn officer and civilian member of the Somerset County Sheriff's Office for fiscal years 2020-2021:

1. First and last name;
2. Unique sequence number;
3. Current badge number
4. Any previously recorded badge number that was used before the current one;
5. Race;
6. Gender;
7. Hire date;
8. Current salary;
9. Overtime paid per fiscal year.

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. Alternatively, please consider waiving any fees, pursuant to § 4-206(e)(2)(ii) of the General Provisions Article, as this request is on behalf of individuals served by the Maryland Office of the Public Defender, a state government agency, which solely serves indigent citizens of Maryland. As a result, my request for the above-listed public records is in the public interest. 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 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
