To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
I would like a copy of any and all requests from local or state law enforcement agencies wishing to hold a FLETC course in their own jurisdiction, or near their own jurisdiction. This can be in the form of any written communications, including email. The date range I would like searched for is 1/1/12 to the date this request is processed.
I would also like any breakdowns, intra-agency reports, summaries, or logs of the law enforcement agencies that have used FLETC to train officers from 1/1/12 to the date this request is processed on. I do not need reports from each department, I am only looking for compilations of the departments that have used FLETC to train officers.
The following is a list of courses I would like specifically searched for, to limit my search:
-Active Shooter Threat Training Program
-Advanced Instruction for Marksmanship
-All Terrain Vehicle Training Program
-Advanced Pistol Training Program
-Continuing Legal Education Training Program-Uniformed Police
-Covert Electronic Tracking Program
-Internet Investigations Training Program
-Introduction to Digital Evidence Analysis
-Mobile Device Investigations Program
-Use of Force Instructor Training Program
-Land Transportation Antiterrorism Training Program
As a member of the news media working for MuckRock News I request that a fee waiver for my request be granted. My work has been published by national outlets. My work for Motherboard can be viewed at the following link: http://motherboard.vice.com/author/cwaltman
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.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
In your FOIA request below, specifically the second portion of the request, I am asking that you clarify which law enforcement agencies you are seeking information. Are you looking for federal, state and local agencies or just state and local?
