Sir, I apologize for the delay. This matter is still an Open Internal Affairs Investigation. I am awaiting advise from council. I don't have an issue providing what you request but I want to make sure the Prosecutors Office also doesn't object. I will contact you as soon as I get the advice I seek. Thank you for your patience.

Dear Captain Martin Biersbach,

Please send all requested records to me via email free of charge as soon as possible. The fact that it’s an open internal investigation has no bearing on releasing the public information I requested. Please forward all requested.

Yours sincerely,

I understand.   I anticipate an issue with video size.  Any way we can
accommodate you we would be happy to do so but I expect a DVD or even a
USB storage device may be necessary.
