--------

Part 1 of 3

Please provide all current CCSO employee names, salaries, positions and titles, including Detention, Civilian, Narcotics, as of 12/22/2020 (or the date the query is performed). I will assume that certain employees will need to be redacted due to their position. Please include:

A. Name, Rank, and Salary

B. Current command structure within the agency.

For example:
Alex Doe - Chief Deputy(s)

Gary Doe - Sergeant of all bureaus and subsections
------------------

Part 2 of 3

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 to CCSO: If this is more of an informational type of question, rather than a clear request for specific public records, please let us know!]
------------------

Part 3 of 3

A. How many vehicles are assigned to the Sheriffs Office?
** [Editor's Note: We will interpret this to mean, "as of 12/22/20 (or the date the query is performed)].

B. How many new vehicles have been either ordered or are in service?
** [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?
** [Editor's Note: We will interpret this to mean "As of 12/22/20 (or the date the query is performed)].

For Example:
2x 2020 Chevrolet Tahoe Police Rated
2x 2021 Ford F-150 Police Interceptor package
1 x 2020 Dodge Durango R/T Police Rated
10x 2020 Ford Explorer Police Interceptor (Is it electric or standard?)

D. What is the projected number of vehicles to be purchased for FY20/21?

Editor’s Note 12/22/20: Please note – Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:

  • ☀️ 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.


Before submitting a request, please take a moment to review our tips for How to make a request. If you have additional questions about our site or how to make requests, please check out our FAQs or Policies page.

    Good afternoon Cobb County Human Resources,

     

    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.

     

    This request was originally sent in to the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office who told us: “In regards to part 1 letter A, our agency is not the custodian of the documents you are requesting. You will need to contact Cobb County Human Resources for this information.” The Sheriff’s Office will be handling the other parts of the request, but we have still sent you the original request in full.

     

    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:

    Good Afternoon,

     

    I am responding to your open records request received on January 4, 2021. In regards to part 1 letter A, our agency is not the custodian of the documents you are requesting. You will need to contact Cobb County Human Resources for this information. I have attached the link below:

     

    https://cobbcountyga.govqa.us/WEBAPP/_rs/(S(3jmz5kk31cj0ibhggdq5juhv))/SupportHome.aspx

     

    In response to part 1 letter B, please visit our website at www.cobbsheriff.org. This information is listed on our website.

     

    In response to Part 2 and Part 3, the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office is under new leadership effective January 1, 2021. Audits are currently being conducted regarding the information you have requested. At this time it would be extremely difficult to provide a cost estimate until those audits are complete as the information is subject to change. Please feel free to contact us at a later date regarding Part 2 and Part 3.
