Dear Mr. Trotter:

This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for: "all correspondence, written or electronic, dated between January 1, 2013 and November 19, 2013, between any employees of the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia and any employees of the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, regarding the surveillance, investigation, and/or arrest of Henry J. Radel (AKA Trey Radel)."

The Metropolitan Police Department does not possess any documents responsive to your request as the investigation and arrest of Mr. Radel was conducted by federal law enforcement agency(cies).

Please know that, under D.C. Official Code § 2-537 and 1 DCMR § 412, you have the right to appeal this letter to the Mayor or to the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. If you elect to appeal to the Mayor, your appeal must be in writing and contain "Freedom of Information Act Appeal" or "FOIA Appeal" in the subject line of the letter as well on the outside of the envelope. The appeal must include (1) a copy of the original request; (2) a copy of any written denial; (3) a statement of the circumstances, reasons, and/or arguments advanced in support of disclosure; and (4) a daytime telephone number, an e-mail and/or U.S. mailing address at which you can be reached.

The appeal must be mailed to: The Mayor's Correspondence Unit, FOIA Appeal, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Suite 316, Washington, .C. 20004. Electronic versions of the same information can instead be e-mailed to The Mayor's Correspondence Unit at foia.mayor@dc.gov<mailto:foia.mayor@dc.gov>. Further, a copy of all appeal materials must be forwarded to the Freedom of Information Officer of the involved agency, or to the agency head of that agency, if there is no designated Freedom of Information Officer there.

Failure to follow these administrative steps will result in delay in the processing and commencement of a response to your appeal to the Mayor.

Sincerely,
