The state's ACLU branch reached out to the Massachusetts State Police requesting records regarding the acquisition and use of robotics.

Should there be a comma before "requesting" ? Is the "requesting" phrase a gerund or participial ? What does it modify ?

Comma, so it's clear it's ACLU not the police doing the requesting. I'd say requesting is a participle modifying "branch".
