In response to you below OPRA request:

Please identify the specific record(s) that you are requesting. As recognized by the court, and OPRA Request is not intended as a research took, but rather as an avenue for citizens to obtain specific government records. MAG Entertainment, LLC v Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, 375 N.J. Super. 534, 550 (2005(. OPRA simply operates to make identifiable government records readily accessible for copying, inspection or examination. Also, the Appellate Division, Elizabeth v. City of Hoboken, Docket No. A-0508-06Ts, held that "OPRA is not intended to be used as a fishing expedition or as a research tool to compile unknown documents".

Dear Ms. Larney,

This was one of my first times requesting records through OPRA, so I didn't realize this would be too overly broad. To help with the wording of my request, I had noticed a previous request to your office from February 26, 2020: "All Police/EMS Calls and Responses in the years 2016-2020 for: Any & All Residences of Bay Avenue, Brick Township, NJ 08724." You responded two days later on February 28, 2020 with the requested records.

Since my request was too overly broad, may I please limit it to the years 2010-2020 for these two streets:
Any & All Residences of West Princeton Avenue, Brick Township, NJ 08724
Any & All Residences of Fort Street, Brick Township, NJ 08724

Since a previous request on February 26, 2020 was granted two days later for "any & all residences of Bay Avenue in Brick Township" using the same wording as I did, I think that my request should also be granted.

Thank you,

Resident

Jessica Larney, Brick Township

I will forward you below clarification to the Police Department (who makes the determination with their records) and see if this is acceptable for them. I will be in tough shortly.
