The Department of Correction's decision to withhold, as a matter of policy, a cassette recording of police dispatch calls without listening to the tape, because it did not believe that it should devote the time necessary to review the recording, was inconsistent with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act. Inmate Jose Cosme appealed to the Freedom of Information Commission alleging that the Hartford Police Department and its chief violated the Freedom of Information Act by failing to provide him with requested records concerning his convictions.
