    My apologies, this email was stuck in my spam folder.

     

    For the dates of 3/17-3/19 there were no COVID-19 signed bond modification releases. Those did not begin until 3/20. More than happen to update your request with new dates if you have them.

     

    Thanks,

    Dejah

    Good afternoon Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office,

     

    We’ve received a new public records request via our website www.sunshinerequest.com 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:
