Model Forms and Procedures
The forms included in this section are composites of similar forms and procedures used by many of the contributing programs. The materials can be freely downloaded and edited. However some forms should be reviewed by the your legal council to ensure compliance with state and local laws and for liability purposes. This caveat particularly applies to those in the Risk Management Subsection, and to the policies, such as, Confidentiality.
If you are working from the internet version or the electronic version on CD ROM, many of the forms are Microsoft Word or Excel files and are easy to modify to fit your needs. The term "Sponsoring Organization" has been used uniformly so that users can easily search and replace that name with the name of your organization. Each of the forms has footers and page numbers relevant only to this section of the Guide. To use, simply delete the footer and insert appropriate page number.
Three of the forms are Adobe pdf. files. Each is a form from a Washington State agency, e.g., Washington State Patrol. These forms can be read and printed with Acrobat 4.0 or later. However, they cannot be edited. Before using the form, you should check with the applicable state agency to ensure there have been no changes to it since the publication of this guide. The forms can also be downloaded directly from the State Agency's web sites.
Please Note: Form 15, the FBI Records Request form, is a sample. The actual card stock form must be used to submit a formal records request to the FBI.
