An interim response, stating the request is being processed.

From: Federal Bureau of Investigation

The request has been rejected, with the agency stating that it can neither confirm nor deny the existence of the requested documents.

From: Martin Peck

This information is both in the public interest and not covered by the claimed exemption. Multiple states have released technical information on the DRT systems used in conjunction with agency investigations and operations. In addition, public reporting on these devices has disclosed relevant information on DRT systems used by the agency beyond that claimed exempt. I request review of and appeal this determination.
