This request is made under the Texas Public Information Act, Chapter 552, Texas Government Code -- which guarantees the public’s access to information in the custody of government agencies. I respectfully request the following information, to be sent to me in email in electronic form:
All penalty letters the university issued to fraternities and sororities from 8/1/2011 to 9/1/2015 because of hazing violations. Please redact any personal information that identifies students. I will accept these redactions; there is no need to make a referral to the attorney general’s office.

Statistical InformationRequest Responsive DocumentsCompleted
Under the Texas Public Information Act,§6252-17a et seq., I am requesting copies of reports that show details regarding incidents of fatal encounters involving people and your agency between January 1, 2000 and today's date. I'm also requesting copies of video of any incidents that were recorded by your agency during the same time period. Please also include the results of any Officer-Involved Death Reviews, or investigations your department conducted of other agencies regarding these types of incidents.
The specific information I'm looking for includes: decedent’s name, age, race, birthday, date of incident, date of death, any available photographs and video, location of death (address, city, state, zip code, country), agencies responsible for death, cause of death (e.g. gunshot, vehicle, Taser, etc.) or if the decedent died from drug overdose or other medical reasons during an arrest or while in custody, a brief description of the circumstances surrounding the death, official disposition of death (justified, or other), and whether the decedent exhibited symptoms of mental illness. I understand that some information, such as symptoms of mental illness may not be explicitly stated, and I don't ask that anyone try to decide or discern that information. Also, I'm willing to recast the request in a way that minimizes work for your agency, just let me know what is appropriate.
