Jonathan Mummolo filed this request with the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security of Tennessee.


From: Jonathan Mummolo

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Tennessee's Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

1. All incident reports or other records documenting each time your agency's S.W.A.T. team (sometimes called a police paramilitary unit) was deployed.

2. In the event such records are not kept, I request a list of the dates of deployment of the agency's S.W.A.T. team during this period.

3. In the event these records/dates are not available for the entire time period covering this request, I request you supply the above information for the period covering the present back to as long as such records/information are available.

This request is being made for academic, not commercial, purposes.

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.
