    Dear Sunshine Request:
    The answers to your questions are: 1. As of June 9, 2020, APD has 15 sworn vacancies and 9 non-sworn vacancies, for a total of 24 vacancies; and. 2. There are two recruitment classes for police officer trainees held each year. The next group of trainees will begin Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET) on Monday, June 29th. APD does not have a target number for each recruitment class.

    Good afternoon Terry,

     

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

     

    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. We will note on our site the statement you recently gave about how “If any of the records are located in city hall, rather than electronically, they will not be found until city employees return to city hall to work.”

     

    Here are the details of the request:
