Mr. Firman,
Attached are records responsive to your request. Please be advised that
the voluminous email correspondence contains redactions to private email
addresses pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1, and to unlisted telephone numbers
pursuant to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1.  Additionally, pages 374, 420, 424, 869,
and 975-1002 contain redactions to precise locations of equipment which
constitute exempt security measures and surveillance techniques pursuant
to N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1.1.  Please be further advised that while I have
attached agreements that appear responsive to your request, to the extent
your request seeks “Any and all documents...pertaining to Flock and/or
Flock Safety” it is denied as it fails to specifically identify government
records and amounts to an invalid request for research through all files
of the Township.  “[A] proper request under OPRA must identify with
reasonable clarity those documents that are desired, and a party cannot
satisfy this requirement by simply requesting all of an agency's
documents.” Bent v. Stafford Police Department, 381 N.J. Super. 30, 37
(App. Div. 2005).  Furthermore, the New Jersey Superior Court has held
that "[w]hile OPRA provides an alternative means of access to government
documents not otherwise exempted from its reach, it is not intended as a
research tool litigants may use to force government officials to identify
and siphon useful information. Rather, OPRA simply operates to make
identifiable government records ‘readily accessible for inspection,
copying, or examination.’ N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1." MAG Entertainment, LLC v.
Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, 375 N.J. Super. 534, 546 (App.
Div. 2005).  “Pursuant to [MAG], the Custodian is obligated to search her
files to find the identifiable government records listed in the
Complainant’s OPRA request . . . .  However, the Custodian is not required
to research her files to figure out which records, if any, might be
responsive to a broad or unclear OPRA request.” Donato v. Township of
Union, GRC Complaint No. 2005-182 (February 2007).   
Thank you.
