From: Todd Feathers

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

1) Audit/use logs, since Jan. 1, 2020, documenting each time a department employee has accessed, queried, uploaded, downloaded, or otherwise used the Virginia Framework for Addiction Analysis and Community Transformation (FAACT) database(s), including , where available, the employee's position, the purpose for which the database(s) was used, the date, and any associated case numbers. Participants in the FAACT program and the Commonwealth Data Trust are required to maintain audit/use logs for transparency and auditing purposes in order to participate in the programs.

I ask that all fees be waived as intend to use the requested records to further public understanding of public agencies and not for any commercial purpose. In the event you choose to impose fees, I request a detailed breakdown of the fees, including the hourly wage of each employee involved and an explanation justifying the employee hours required to fulfill the request.

Should you choose to reject this request or redact portions of responsive documents, I ask that you provide a detailed breakdown of the statutory exemptions and associated case law underlying your decision to withhold each/any portions from public review.

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.

This request is filed by Tom Nash, a citizen of Virginia, in coordination with Todd Feathers.

Record request #22-1754 has been closed. The closure reason supplied was:

Dear Mr. Nash,

The Virginia State Police does not access the FAACT database and therefore there are no responsive records.

Pursuant to Virginia Code § 2.2-3704(B)(3) (or pursuant to the subpoena), the requested records could not be found or do not exist in the Department's investigative files. The Department only houses police incident reports for cases it has investigated, not those conducted by other agencies. Any incident report will need to be obtained from the agency that handled the incident, accident, or arrest.


We regret we are unable to assist you further in this matter but hope the information provided is helpful.
