Hi,

Under the state public records law, I am a journalist writing to request data from your department as part of a national project on stolen firearms. Can your department please provide the following:

1) Number of guns that were stolen in each 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 and 2016.

2) Number of guns that were stolen from motor vehicles in each 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

For both Nos. 1 and 2, we are only seeking the number of guns stolen for each year, not police reports or any other details. If possible, please include only the number of stolen firearms, not lost firearms. If lost firearms must be included, please advise us.

I am a reporter with The Trace (thetrace.org), a nonprofit news organization, making this request through MuckRock’s public records request management service. These figures will be made available to the general public. 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. Please make all invoices out to The Trace.

I would prefer the request be completed electronically and the information sent to me here or this email: foia@thetrace.org

If information must be sent by mail, please send to the following address:

Attn: Brian Freskos

Thank you for your help with filling this request. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me on my cell phone at (919) 522-6354.
