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

A copy of the Use of Force Policy used by your enforcement officers.

To Whom It May Concern:

From: FOIA, FWHQ

Hi Mr. Triplett,

Mr. Ray McLaughlin recently retired. I have just taken over as the new FWS
FOIA Officer following the FWS's physical move from Arlington to Falls
Church. I am going through all FWS HQ FOIA files to make sure that all
received requests and inquiries are being addressed. I see that we indeed
did receive your July 3, 2014, request, but it appears that you never
received an acknowledgment number from us. I have put this request in our
system (tracking number FWS-2014-01216). I know that Mr. McLaughlin was
working with our Law Enforcement Office on this request, so I have reached
out to confirm the status.

Thank you for your patience.

Respectfully,

Melissa
