To Whom It May Concern:

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

All training protocols developed by Justice Department components regarding the deployment and use of cell site simulators.

Per the amended policy on cell site simulators, "Department of Justice Policy Guidance: Use of Cell-Site Simulator Technology" (available at http://www.justice.gov/opa/file/767321/download): "Each agency shall identify training protocols. These protocols must include training on privacy and civil liberties developed in consultation with the Department's Chief Privacy and Civil Liberties Officer."

As I am submitting this FOIA request in my capacity as a journalist who has covered extensively the deployment of cell site simulators by law enforcement at the federal, state, and local levels, I assert that I am appropriately categorized as a media requester for the purpose of fees. As this request concerns a matter of intense public interest and responsive documents will be posted online for the public to review free of charge, I further request a waiver of any applicable fees.

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.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave
New England Center for Investigative Reporting
