Hello,

Thank you for the message. Unfortunately, when I enter the FOIA # on the page you provided nothing happens. I understand that your office may be busy with other requests but I would hope to obtain at least an estimated time to release - or information about when this case was assigned to a search officer.

Best,
Taylor Scott Amarel

This is what I get when I type the entire COW number into the box and hit enter. It tells you where you are in relation to other requests. We cannot provide you a specific time on when you will receive it. We process on a first in first out basis and it depends on the complexity of cases that come before yours as to how soon your request will come up in the queue.
