    Microsoft Excel Spread sheet of FOI requests made to CT. State Police

    By obtaining information is spreadsheet format the information may be sorted and viewed in many different ways.



    With assistance and intervention from, the linked Microsoft Excel Spead Sheet was received.
    This spreadsheet documents who is asking the State Police for Records and the status of the logged requests.
    This data give a glimpes and evidence of exactly how the DESPP Legal Affairs Unit handles requests.

    Had to go to your website to DL .. linky no works - a link to the link is below
    Link fixed on OP ... click to open/save now

    http://www.ctgunrights.com/

    Oddly enough, I requested the same file on 4 SEP 13. If you want a copy of the one I get let me know.

    So, did they claim any exemption? I see the last entry date in July. So it took 2 mos to get something that should have taken 5 seconds, right?


    Seems like Ed doesn't want to tell us if they claimed an exemption ... I see no "NAME" included for:
    12-991
    12-992
    12-1004
    13-041
    13-047
    13-096
    13-113
    13-162
    13-240
    13-269
    13-456
    13-492
    13-504
    13-537

    And with 13-047, the guy filed a complaint before the FOIC (says so right in spreadsheet) ~ so its clear his name should be provided. Indeed, all should be provided. No secret who has convictions. And these ARE NOT redactions .. they are deletions. Once you file a FOI request, the request is public record itself. Once a person files a FOI request, he exposes his ID and what he is seeking from the agency to the public. There are no "sealed FOIA requests" in this state.

    If DESPP did not tell you that deletions were performed then they may have committed a crime under CGS Sec. 1-240.

    I'll follow up with DESPP asking to inspect the original FOI requests of these...

    Well, here is an interesting FIC decision regarding estopple issues, paragraph 18 & 19 of the linked case here:
    http://www.ct.gov/foi/cwp/view.asp?a=4162&Q=530084



    Also, in respect to the spreadsheet ... I'll be getting it soon...email snip below:

    You should expect to receive the spreadsheet soon. I will have that request moved to the top of the pile.

    Christine P. Plourde, Esq.


    But I do have a FIC complaint that will touch on the subject of DESPP having rules and procedures that abrogate the FOI Act.

    My request for a spreadsheet was made 4 sep .... I should have gotten it by now. I also know that DESPP has another set of responsive records (a whooping 5-10 pages ~ yeah, a real burden) that they have been sitting on since 15 JUL 13...sitting at the legal dept.

    Maybe its time for a sit-in/hunger strike there? That pile that Christine refers to has to be the size of Mt. Everest.

    I'll be getting my spreadsheet through the polite but firm demand that the act be complied with and after several communications that I included the commissioner on (the last one I cc-ed the commish ~ I guess he understood my jist and ordered the record produced w/o unneeded delay).

    It amazes me how state agencies and municipalities can get away with SUCH ****** SPREADSHEETS. I'd TOTALLY get fired for a spreadsheet like this.
