To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

-All recommendations or reports coming out of working groups convened to identify and address any policy and legal issues
pertaining to the use of unmanned aerial systems, aka drones, for surveillance purposes.

Per a September 2013 letter from the Office of the Deputy Attorney General sent to the Inspector General (available here: http://www.justice.gov/oig/reports/2013/a1337.pdf):

"In August 2013, ODAG directed the Office of Legal Policy (OLP) to convene a working group composed of a broad range of DOJ components, including the Office of Privacy and Civil Liberties, to identify and address any policy and legal issues pertaining to the use of UAS for surveillance purposes. This working group will make a recommendation to DOJ leadership on the need for any DOJ policies or guidance specific to UAS, and will work to develop any such policies or guidance as needed. We will notify your office once the internal DOJ working group has reached a conclusion about the need for any DOJ policies or guidance specific to UAS. "

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave
