We have received your public records request and cannot provide you with these records without an expenditure of an exorbitant amount of time - frankly, I cannot even at this stage estimate how many hours it would take, but it will be many. The reason for this is our records keeping system does not allow us to simply search and produce records for all school resource officers during a 10 year period - it would require a manual searching of records to produce anything, if anything is et all responsive to your request. If you would like to contact me I can explain further, and work with you to see if there is some manner in which we can narrow the scope of your request that would enable us to provide the information you are seeking. You are welcome to call me at 772-462-3225 - should you wish to remain anonymous simply call and use the name "Mr. or Ms. Muckrock" and I will know what you are calling in reference to. Thank you.
