To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Government Records Access and Management Act, I hereby request the following records:

I am requesting the following about information of a trip between Utah Highway Patrol and the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) "Anti-Defamation League National Counter-Terrorism Seminar"
Specifically, I am requesting:
- Any and all records about invoices and payments made to cover the cost of this trip
- Documents sufficient to show which officers received this training
- Documents sufficient to show how the trip was paid for
- Documents sufficient to show if officers have gone on similar trips in the last five years
- Documents sufficient to show communications between the Utah Highway Patrol, the ADL, and if available, and other offices such as the governor's office.

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 10 business days, as the statute requires.

The request has been rejected by the agency.

I'm not sure what that rejection letter is supposed to say. All it states is that this request is not UHP. The ADL has mentioned that the UHP has been to Israel, it is usually a high ranking officer that has attended. It's capped at 1-2 officers per year. It might have been longer than five years ago that the last officer has attended. The easiest way to check is to search for e-mails between @adl.org emails, in particular ejarvis@adl.org and the police department. Please clarify what was meant by the rejection letter. In the case of a lack of clarity, I can narrow the request made or appeal.

Thank you.
