Communications

From: Dongjae Jung

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the South Carolina Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I request South Carolina’s crime statistics/information by county during the fiscal years of 2012. The concrete information request on crime statistics is based on the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports format. Please see the following sub-requests:

1) South Carolina’s crime statistics by county in FY2012:
- Number of offenses reported (murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, and auto theft)
- Number of arrests (murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, larceny, and auto theft)

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 15 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Dongjae Jung

Dear Agent Thom Berry,

Thank you for your response.
I have frequently searched the web site you mentioned during last six months, but I did not find any update on crime rate there. So I directly e-mailed your institution several times on crime rate data for FY2012, but I never received any response from your institution. That is why I made this FOIA request.

Please tell me the estimated date for publishing and updating crime rate data for FY2012 in your web site. Also I recommend that your institution should be more public-respondent, considering my past experience with no responses to my several questions on data requests.

Dongjae Jung

From: Berry, Thom

Thank you for your email of February 13. Please forgive my tardiness in responding as our offices were closed for much of last week due to the ice/snow storm and Monday for the President's Day observance.

The estimate at this time is several weeks for the Uniform Crime Report for 2012 to be published to our website.

I can provide you with updates as I get them.

Feel free to stay in touch with me.

To Whom It May Concern:

I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on Jan. 28, 2014. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed. You had assigned it reference number #2014-068.

Thank you for your help.

From: Berry, Thom

Good Morning.

I have been informed that the 2012 South Carolina Uniform Crime Report will be posted to the SLED website at www.sled.sc.gov in approximately 2-3 weeks. If you prefer, the 2011 Uniform Crime Report is posted and can be downloaded from the SLED website at no cost.

If you need the 2012 information prior to its' official release, we will ask the staff to conduct a special run to obtain the information. However, that information must be identified as provisional as the report is in the final stages of verification prior to release. We will invoice your site at the rate of five dollars per quarter-hour for this special handling.

Please advise me how you wish to proceed with this request.

Thank you.

I am asking our statistical staff if we can get you the numbers with the understanding that until completely reviewed and published, all numbers are provisional and subject to change.

Good Morning.

I had hoped the Uniform Crime Report would have been posted by now as the latest date I heard was June 16th. We found a glitch in the computer program that is being addressed. I will let you know when the report is posted.

In the interim, I have asked if the numbers you seek can be run and listed as "provisional" since they have not been published. I am awaiting an answer on that request.

Thank you for your patience.
