To Whom It May Concern:

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

Arrest reports for anyone taken into custody on February 22nd or February 23rd of 2017 in the area along the Cannonball River that was the site of the anti-Dakota Access pipeline protests. On the dates just mentioned an eviction of demonstrators took place. I would also like any Special Event Threat Assessment Reports, situational awareness reports, compilations of equipment or munitions to be used, any after action reports, any incident reports, and any post-operational briefings or memoranda to personnel concerning the eviction. I would also like any reports on the cleaning up of the protester camp, which came to be known as Oceti Sakowin. These would be reports dealing with what role the department would play in the clean up, and what methods were used.

As a member of the news media working for MuckRock News I request that a fee waiver for my request be granted. My work has also been published by national outlets. My work for Motherboard can be viewed at the following link: http://motherboard.vice.com/author/cwaltman

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.

Sincerely,

Curtis Waltman
