Request #18-5164
I am working on a journalism project at the University of Maryland. We are collecting data on emergency response calls from cities around the country.
Pursuant to Louisiana Public Records Law, I am requesting the raw data for emergency response calls answered by New Orleans for the last three years.
The fields of data we are requesting include but are not limited to:
  • Date of call
  • Time of call
  • Address of call
  • Reason for call
  • Response time
  • Name of agency responding
To be clear, this request includes but is not limited to the above types of data if that
information is collected. If the data are not collected, please let us know. If the data or any portion of the data are collected but are not considered public record, please cite the exemption under the law and provide the nonexempt portions of the data.
Fee Waiver:
This request is not being made for commercial purposes. The data are being
requested for journalism and research purposes, and release of them is in the public interest. We are requesting similar data from cities across the country. The data provide insight into the operation of government and involve expenditure of public funds. Our analysis of the data will be used to inform the public. If fees are not waived, please inform me if charges will exceed $20 and the reason for any estimated costs.
Electronic format:
We are requesting the data be provided electronically. We can accept the
data in many common formats, including delimited text file, spreadsheet or as a database. Please email the data to me: In the event the data must be sent physically or on a CD or portable drive, please mail it to Sanchali Singh, c/o Sandra Banisky, Knight Hall,7765 Alumni Drive, College Park, MD., 20742.
