Dear Open Records Officer,
This request is made under the Texas Public Information Act, Chapter 552, Texas
Government Code, which guarantees the publics access to information in the custody of
governmental agencies. I respectfully request copies of the information:
1. All final audits of Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) numbers for 2004-2014.
I respectfully ask that the information I request is provided to me in an electronic form, such
as a PDF and/or an Excel or CSV spreadsheet. I request the full audit, including any
accompanying statistical data.
I am a reporter with The Dallas Morning News. Disclosure is in the public interest because
its intended use is for a news story that contains information that primarily benefits the
general public. I therefore request a waiver of all fees and charges pursuant to Section
552.267 of the act. If you choose not to waive the fees and the amount exceeds $40, please
provide me an itemized cost estimate.
If the decision is made not to waive the fees, I ask to review the disclosed material and mark
those portions I wish to have copied, as is permitted under the TPIA.
Please release the information Ive requested as it becomes available. In the event you decide
to dispute the release of some portions of this request, I ask that the remainder be provided to
me promptly.
Please contact me if you need any additional information about this request. My direct phone
number is 214.977.8070. My e-mail address is etimms@dallasnews.com.
