DETROIT (WXYZ) — 7 Action News has obtained a search warrant that was executed on Detroit's city hall, specifically on the city's IT department in relation to the Make Your Date program.

Although the search warrant was executed Friday , details of the warrant were made known Monday.

The warrant reveals that the state attorney general's office was after any and all records – documents or physical items – for any Detroit email accounts belonging to Mayor Mike Duggan, Chief of Staff Alexis Wiley and other top city officials between January of 2014 and last week.

Specifics of the search warrant related to the Make Your Date program include turning over emails, photographs, videotapes, backup files, archived files, as well as the "recovery of data from any and all computers and servers off site and across the network, or cloud-based storage solutions under the control of the city of Detroit."

This is linked to the AG's probe into the city's handling of the Make Your Date nonprofit foundation.

While the search warrant was executed on Detroit's city Hall, the IT department is physically located at the Detroit Public Safety Headquarters.
