Grossman LE Training Companies (Wahkiakum County Sheriff)

Curtis Waltman filed this request with the Wahkiakum County Sheriff of Wahkiakum County, WA.


From: Curtis Waltman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to RCW Ch. 42.56 (Public Records Act), I hereby request the following records:

Any records of communication with Killology Research Group LLC and/or The Grossman Academy. The Grossman Academy is part of the V-Academy corporate alliance, issuing virtual reality training to law enforcement. I would also like any promotional materials given to the department, and if training was sought from either of these law enforcement training companies, then I would like a copy of any contract and any reports that were generated from the program. If Dave Grossman or his companies discussed in any way with the department what the topic or a class or seminar would be, please include that in your response. If any recordings or any newsletters were sent referencing these companies, please include them as well. Please conduct the search from 1/1/13 and the date this request is processed on.

As a member of the news media working for MuckRock News I request that a fee waiver for my request be granted. My work has also been published by national outlets. My work for Motherboard can be viewed at the following link:

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.
