To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Documents relating to any agreements, contracts or instances where the Department loaned out a cell site simulator (including StingRay, AmberJack, Hailstorm, Kingfish, Gossamer, Triggerfish, or DRTboxes) to another law enforcement department. This includes:
-contracts or other agreements
-any documentation on specific instances where a cell site simulator was loaned out
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 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Please note that I am a citizen of Virginia, and am using MuckRock's services to help manage and track my request.
Thank you for your recent email to the Virginia Department of State Police (the Department) seeking "[d]ocuments relating to any agreements, contracts or instances where the Department loaned out a cell site simulator (including StingRay, AmberJack, Hailstorm, Kingfish, Gossamer, Triggerfish, or DRTboxes) to another law enforcement department." As you may be aware, requests for records of the Commonwealth, its agencies and political subdivisions are governed by the Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), §§ 2.2-3700 et. seq. of the Code of Virginia. Under FOIA the Department is not required to answer questions or create documents that do not already exist.
Pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2-3704(B)(3), the requested records could not be found or do not exist as the Department has never "loaned out a cell site simulator" to another law enforcement ageny.
