From: J Ader

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Any video recordings, presentation slides, and/or other documents from the March 28, 2018 webinar titled "The Power of Collaboration and Data Sharing: The Ohio Pre-Criminal Intervention Program (PCIP)"

Here is a description of the event in question, text from a "CICC Five in 5" newsletter:
"The Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) leadership, in collaboration with the Comprehensive Opioid Abuse Program (COAP) team, invites you to a no-cost webinar on March 28, 2018, at 1:00 p.m., ET, to learn how cross-system collaboration and data sharing are addressing opioid misuse in the state of Ohio by supporting the implementation of a pre-criminal intervention program (PCIP).

As part of Ohio’s strategy to reduce prescription drug misuse and abuse, the Ohio Board of Pharmacy plans to use data from the Ohio Automated Rx Reporting System (OARRS) to identify those who may be engaged in patterns of behavior indicative of substance misuse or abuse and who may be in violation of Ohio’s doctor-shopping law."

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.
