If separate strictures exist for each, provision of both would be greatly appreciated.)

• any and all available policies and procedures regarding local firearms policies. Please provide all such materials that alter or supplement departmental procedures.

• the sale and purchase of firearms.

Please notify us if further clarification is necessary.
