To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:
Training plan submitted to the Department of Defense's Connecticut state coordinator for Windsor PD's "MINE RESISTANT VEHICLE" (NSN: 2355-01-590-1660) - as described in the below statement from Michelle McCaskill, spokesperson for the Defense Logistics Agency:
"It has always been the responsibility of each state’s designated coordinator to ensure that each and every Law Enforcement Agency (LEA) is trained on the equipment they received from the 1033 program. LEAs are required to certify to DoD through the state coordinator they have a training plan for an asset that requires specialized training, to include armored vehicles and aircraft, before the equipment is issued. LESO receives a copy of the plan only – the approval process is at the state coordinator level."
Please also include any documents used in the training, or internal memos and records referencing either the training plan or the training itself.
I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at MuckRock.com.
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 4 business days, as the statute requires.
The MRAP housed at the Windsor Police Department was acquired by the North Central Emergency Services Team. While the vehicle is housed here in Windsor it is operated by the members of the North Central Emergency Services Team under the direction of Chief Melanson of Farmington. Your request for training records should therefore be directed to Chief Melanson. If you have any further questions please contact me at 860-688-5273 ext. 565 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>.
