To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
I request documentation of all cases brought to court involving Special Conservators of the Peace (SCOPs). These may include but not be limited to:
-Cases where an SCOP was involved in the apprehension or arrest of a defendant or suspect
-Cases where an SCOP was implicated or accused of committing a crime (felony, misdemeanor, or infraction).
Please limit responses to those cases filed between 2012 and the date this request is processed.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.
Be advised that this office is not able to respond to your request. We have no way of tracking which, if any, cases involved a Special Conservator of the Peace as a defendant or a complainant.
