I'd also like to request to know how many positions are currently open in each division as of 12/22/20 (or the date the query is performed).

** [Editor's Note: We will interpret this to mean, "as of 12/22/20 (or the date the query is performed)].

** [Editor's Note: We will interpret this to mean, "as of 12/22/20 (or the date the query is performed)].

C. What type of “Patrol unit” has been ordered and how many? Are all the vehicles marked units?

  • ☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, or vague.

Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to make a request.

While we do proofread requests we receive for general spelling and clarity, we may choose not to fulfill the request if it is incomplete, or it is unclear what specific information the requester hopes to receive. In this case, the sender may rewrite and resubmit the request.

☀️ Requests that are only informational questions, and requests that are not addressed to government entities.

Sunshine Request is a site built to make requests for public records to the government — Public records are recorded information such as documents, government emails, and data sets.

In the interest of preserving our team’s time to focus on the high volume of requests on our site, as well to respect the staff time of government entities fulfilling records requests, Sunshine Request will no longer fulfill “requests” that are just informational type questions for government entities to answer.

We also will not fulfill requests made to non-government entities.

It’s the requester’s responsibility to write the request in a manner that clearly specifies a record that is being requested, and to what government entity it should be sent.

    Your request involves a great deal of documents and your request also ask for a lot of non-responsive documents. We will attempt to work to get you all of your requested documents as soon as possible but we need to take care of a few matters.

     

    As provided by O.C.G.A. § 50-18-71(c) (1), there is no charge for the first 15 minutes of staff time utilized to search for, retrieve, redact’, and produce or copy the requested records, but the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office will charge “the prorated hourly salary of the lowest paid full-time employee who, in the reasonable discretion of the [Clayton County Sheriff’s Office], has the necessary skill and training to perform the request”. O.C.G.A. § 50-18-71(c) (1). In this case, the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office estimates the search and retrieval of records pertaining to your request will take 10 hour (minus the first 15 minutes) at the rate of $27.57 per hour. The search and review of the documents you requested will result in an estimated total cost of no less than $_275.70_.

     

    In the event that you choose to receive printed copies of all or a portion of the responsive records, a charge of $0.10 per page for letter or legal size documents will apply as authorized by O.C.G.A. §50-18-71(c)(2). Because the County’s estimated costs are in excess of the $25.00 threshold set by the Act, the County is deferring review and retrieval of the records until you agree to pay the estimated costs. O.C.G.A. § 50-18-71(d).

     

    Please note that the above estimates of time and costs are subject to revision (including potentially increasing or decreasing the estimated amounts and lengthening the time for production) depending upon the actual time spent searching for, retrieving, reviewing, and redacting the records as well as the actual number of pages of records retrieved. Additionally, should you choose to proceed, the charges associated with the staff time necessary to process your request will be due whether or not you elect to retain copies of the responsive records or continue to pursue your request.

    Good afternoon Clayton County, GA Sheriff’s Office,

     

    Happy New Year!

     

    We’ve received a new public records request via our website for information that may be available in your office.

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    Please confirm receipt to let us know the request will begin processing, and if possible, please provide a rough estimate of when the request may be completed. We will plan on following up again around that time.

     

    Here are the details of the request:
