Dear Mr. Craven, the response was sent to you and administratively closed. I cannot address this any further and the appeal information was provided. I believe the response indicated the reasons clearly. The use of force reports are done at facilities and vary greatly. The withholding of inspection reports ; security functions and operations would not be releasable. Please understand that the response you received was the best I could provide based on your request, and my inquiry about records.

Thank you for your understanding.
