I asked for a report and was told I could not have it. Why is that?

Some examples of records not otherwise available to the public for which records were compiled are if the disclosure of the records would result in disclosing (A) the identity of informants not otherwise known or the identity of witnesses not otherwise known whose safety would be endangered or who would be subject to threat or intimidation if their identity was made known, (B) signed statements of witnesses, (C) information to be used in a prospective law enforcement action if prejudicial to such action, (D) investigatory techniques not otherwise known to the general public, (E) arrest records of a juvenile, which shall also include any investigatory files, concerning the arrest of such juvenile, compiled for law enforcement purposes, (F) the name and address of the victim of a sexual assault or injury or risk of injury, or impairing of morals under CGS section 53-21, or of an attempt thereof or (G) uncorroborated allegations.
