Previously reported on McHenry County Blog are these two parts of a comprehensive Freedom of Information request made by Chicago Tribune reporter Joe Hahr to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department:
- Four years of traffic stop data for the Sheriff’s Department
- Four years’ booking data for the McHenry County Jail
Here’s another part of the request:
Electronic copies of all available photos of inmates booked into the jail from Jan. 1, 2007, through Dec. 31, 2010, with the file names including some type of identifier (such as booking number) that would link back to a specific inmate and date of picture being taken. We understand the images would likely be in some type of image-based format, such as .jpg, .tif, or .pdf.
If the records are provided as part of a linked database, please provide a file layout, or schema, of the provided records, to explain what fields of data are provided, and in what format. (If these photos are kept individually, with file names that label them, there is no need for a file layout.)
