Re: Campus Security Enhancement Act of 2008

Dear Ms. Fortino On behalf of the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (O.E.M.C.), I am responding to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Please be advised your request for an electronic list of the hazards and campus violence plans of the 63 higher learning institutions in Chicago is denied for the following reasons:


5 ILCS 140/7 (v) Vulnerability assessments, security measures, and response policies or plans that are designed to identify, prevent or respond to potential attacks upon a communitys population or systems, facilities or installations, the destruction or contamination of which would constitute a clear and present danger to the health or safety of the community. Homeland Security Act, Title II, Subpart B, 6 U.S.C. Sec. 133 (a)(1)(E)


The request was denied under the abovementioned exemptions because the purpose of the plan is the development and coordination of an emergency response plan between the institute of higher learning and the Emergency Management Office. Release of the specifics of any plans, as well as the compliance of any such plans, to the general public could result in an attack on the institute of higher learning. To the extent that you consider this a denial of your FOIA request, you have a right of review by the Illinois Attorney Generals Public Access Counsel, who may be contacted at 500 S. Second Street, Springfield, Illinois 62706 or by telephone at (217) 558-0486. You may also seek judicial review of a denial under 5 ILCS 140/11 of FOIA. Sincerely,

Mary Thompson Freedom of Information Officer O.E.M.C.
