Section 552.222 of the Texas Public Information Act permits a governmental body to ask a requestor to clarify or narrow a request for information if the request is unclear or if a large amount of information has been requested. The purpose of this letter is to ask that you clarify or narrow your request by providing us with more information about the particular records you seek. The following paragraph highlights the aspect of your request that we find to be unclear or overly broad.

We are not able to centrally search all UTPD email. Since your request is not limited to particular units or individuals within UTPD, and you request is not limited to particular types of law enforcement matters, everyone in UTPD would have to conduct a search of their emails. Initial estimates indicate that a search of this size would result in a cost to you of over $2,000. Given this information, please consider narrowing your request to particular employees/units within UTPD and consider being more specific regarding the subject matters being discussed in responsive emails. If you do not wish to narrow your request, let us know and we will send you an official cost estimate.

Please let us know how you wish to proceed. Upon receipt of your response, we will resume work on your request.  You may deliver your response by replying to this email or by any one of the following means:
