I'm requesting the 2019 yearly budget for the New Orleans Police Department.
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $ 25. However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of NOPD budget allocation. I’m a freelance reporter and a member of the news media. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.
Please note that I would like to receive the information in electronic format. I can accept it in several formats (xls, csv, txt) and can accept the data on a variety of media (e-mail, cloud, FTP site, CD-ROM, etc.).
If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.
Thank you for considering my request and if you have any questions feel free to reach out.
