To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Virginia Freedom of Information Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on April 30, 2019. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
Good Morning Mr. Nash,
Thank you for your correspondence to the Virginia Department of State
Police (the 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.
Pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2-3704(B)(3), the requested records could not
be found or do not exist. While the Department is a participant in the
Northern Virginia Regional Gang Task Force, the Department does not utilize
DataWalk. We recommend you contact the task force directly for the
requested materials. The link below provides contact information for
various members of the task force, but I was unable to find a specific
address for their office:
We regret we are unable to assist you further in this matter but hope the
information provided is helpful.
