Hello Madison County, NC Sheriffs Office (or County Government),

I'd like to make a three part, public records request for the following information. Please provide the most responsive records as of 12/22/2020 (or the date the query is performed):
--------

Part 1 of 3

Please provide all current MCSO 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)
Bob Doe - Major(s)/ Enforcement/ Detention (pay)
Casey Doe - Captain(s) Patrol/Detention (pay)
David Doe - Captain(s) Criminal Investigations (pay)
Ellen Doe - Executive Lieutenant(s) All Division’s
Fred Doe - Lieutenant(s) patrol/Criminal/Detention (pay)
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 MCSO: 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?)
5x 2020 Dodge Charger AWD Police Rated
2x 2021 Chevrolet Caprice Police Unit

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

**[Editor's Note to MCSO: If request "Part 3 of 3" #s A-D are more of informational type of questions, rather than clear requests for specific public records, please let us know!]

  • ☀️ 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.
