To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the South Dakota Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

Documents pertaining to the deployment of personnel in regards to the North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple issuing a state of emergency in response to protests at Standing Rock over the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Documents sought are as follows:
-memos or requests received from the North Dakota Governor's Office, Morton County Sheriff's Department, North Dakota Emergency Management Agency, or North Dakota Highway Patrol for help under the Emergency Management Assistance Compact.
-emails with the aforementioned North Dakota agencies regarding the Standing Rock protests and/or personnel sent there to help with emergency management
-memos, emails, and requests sent internally with regards to the decision to deploy officers to North Dakota to help with controlling the protest
-Requests from the aforementioned North Dakota agencies for specific equipment to be brought to the Standing Rock protest area for their use in controlling the protest. This equipment may include but is not limited to surveillance devices including cell site simulators or social media surveillance software, or crowd control methods such as long range acoustic devices, water cannons, rubber bullets, tear gas, pepper spray or tasers.
-any bills, contracts, agreements, invoices, or other financial documentation for services rendered in helping to control the Standing Rock NoDAPL protests. These documents would likely be sent to the 4 aforementioned North Dakota agencies.

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Curtis Waltman
