(August 2021) Request for City of Asheville, NC: Internal communications related to use of force policy change at Asheville Police Department 1/1/2020 – 08/30/2021

Hi City of Asheville, NC Government (Records Officer),

I’d like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law:

Please provide all City of Asheville Employee internal communications (including, but not limited to: Staff emails, memos, and notices) which are related to "underreported Use of Force", as well as, "Change in APD's Use of Force Policy".

The responsive records should include the time period of when Chief David Zack was hired [exact date unknown, but I think it's around 01/01/20?] until the present day (date the query is performed).
----

For all requested items above, please provide all .pdfs, files, attachments, videos, hyperlinks, emails, time keeping minutes, etc. that are indicated within the responsive records. For example: A .pdf that is an attachment within an email, should also be provided as a document along with the responsive emails.

Please include all of those additional documents where applicable, as relates to the requested information above.

If the records are ultimately too large to send via emailed file share, I'd ask that you please create a public Google Drive folder / link or some other file format to transfer the files electronically.

Thank you for your assistance!
