JACKSONVILLE, FL (July 19, 2017) - In a news conference this afternoon, Sheriff Mike Williams explained the JSO’s estimate for a large public records (30 items), made in June by a local attorney representing a family in a lawsuit.
It had been reported in the news that the $314k estimate for work was specific to the requests for files and information about one officer, which was inaccurate. In his conversation with local media, Sheriff Williams clarified that among the request for information about the one officer, the 30-item document also included a request for the cost to provide materials from personnel files and discipline files, for every employee that works or has worked at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office currently and in the past 10 years. Filling this order would require literally tens of thousands of documents to be read line-by-line (for legally mandated removal of confidential information) and audio and video to be reviewed frame-by-frame for the same removal of confidential information defined by Florida Statute. Providing a cost estimate to fill any public records request is the obligation of government agencies.

JACKSONVILLE, FL (July 19, 2017) - It is not unusual for parties seeking public records to make a request that can result in a voluminous amount of materials. This can create a good faith estimate that appears to be exorbitant.
