Without getting into alot of details, a friend of mine agreed to work with a department, in a investigation that is still active. He has been under surveillance at different periods and wants to know if its possible to request, log sheets, surveillance video, direct observation notes, etc?
The reason why he wants to request these records is because, he was in a car accident and hope it might show fault. He does not know, if on that day of the accident, if he was even being watched. But there is a really good chance he was.
Even if there was no video, he is wondering if maybe there was direct observation, and notes were filed explaining what happened.
Last question, if these records cannot be requested by F.O.I.A/Etc, then can it be done by a lawyer with a court order or something?
