RE: FOIA/PA# 435-33

Dear Mr. Morisy:

This is in response to your email (below) dated May 1, 2013, requesting,
pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), a copy of any DSS listings
of videos and films at DSS.

A search of the automated indices at DSSHQ located no 'listing" of
films/videos except those currently listed/identified on DSS's public website
at The Center for Development of Security
Excellence (CDSE) identifies on their webpage a list of videos and catalog of
elearning video courses used in security education.

We appreciate having been able to assist you in your request. Should you have
any questions, please feel to contact my office via email or at (571)
