Specifically, I am requesting:
- Any and all records about invoices and payments made to cover the cost of this trip
- Documents sufficient to show which officers received this training
- Documents sufficient to show how the trip was paid for
- Documents sufficient to show if officers have gone on similar trips in the last five years
- Documents sufficient to show communications between the St. Petersburg Police Department, the ADL, and if available, and other offices such as the mayor's office.

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.

Sanjin Ibrahimovic,
Please see the attached information in response to your request for documentation associated with an "ADL Trip to Israel." Please note that during the training date identified the department's email system did not support key word searches. To try to address your request for "communications between the St. Petersburg Police Department, ADL," each employee would have to conduct an independent search for such communication. I would be happy to produce a cost estimate for employees to perform such a search if requested. Please give me a call at the number below if you have any questions.

Sincerely,
Colleen

Hi,

I think it would be simplest to search for e-mails between the Police Department (in particular the individual listed here who attended the training) and @adl.org e-mail addresses. A common one that shows up is ejarvis@adl.org. This would dramatically simplify the search. The e-mails should be exportable in some format or documentable. If you have an IT department employee, I can assist with writing code to search for the e-mails by particular e-mail addresses. If costs are required, if manageable, I would request that it be waived in the public interest since it shouldn't be more than 10-12 e-mails when the "to" and "from" e-mails are narrowed down to the one's listed above. If you need any further information, let me know, but by narrowing the search for e-mails it should be rather simple and not have to cost anything.

Thank you,

Sanjin Ibrahimovic

Hello,

The City Clerk was able to run a query using the "@adl.org" extension you requested. The search returned a hit of 1,069 emails. Narrowing the search to include the employee who attended the specific training class and the @adl.org extension returned a hit of 324 emails. I would assume the high return is due to generic training announcements, but will not know for sure until the individual email is reviewed. We will have to review the emails prior to release for possible required exempt/confidential information in accordance with F.S.S. 119. Would you like an estimate for the cost associated with the review of the 1,069 emails, the 324 emails, or would you like to narrow the search to a specific time period? You may also call me at the number below if you have further questions.

Sincerely,
Colleen

Hi Colleen,

Is there any way to search for duplicate content between those e-mails? I'm almost certain most of the e-mails are newsletters that have been sent to multiple parties within the police department. If those e-mails could be automatically filtered by e-mail content duplication, it would lower the count of e-mails required for review. If the metadata subject lines for all 1,000 emails could be put into an excel document that might be an easier way to see which e-mails might be pertinent to my work and I can make more individual requests for e-mails. Those shouldn't contain any sensistive information.

Thank you,

Understood. I will reach out to our IT team to see what is possible. Since we are trying to access an archived system, it may take a little time for them to research. I will be back in touch when we have received a response.
