(May 2024) Request for Clay County, NC Sheriff’s Office: Total calls received and dispatched by month. From 01/01/20 – 04/01/24.

Good afternoon Sheriff, Tabitha, Debbie, (or Records Officer / Custodian(s) of these records),

Please reply promptly to the following public records request, which I’m making in accordance with NC Public Records Law. https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

Please provide the total number of calls received AND dispatched for the Clay County Sheriff's Office/911 Dispatch, during the time period of 01/01/2020 through 04/01/2024. Please also indicate the total number of calls received and dispatched by month to each entity (such as the Fire Dept, Police Dept, etc).

For Example:
January 2020. Total Calls: 100. Dispatched to Sheriff's Dept: 25. Dispatched to Fire Dept: 10

To be clear, I’m only requesting to know totals. Please DO NOT include any personally identifying information about callers, addresses, case #s, etc, if that type of data exists. It is not relevant to my request.

** I’m simply requesting an electronic copy of an electronic record, if one exists. I’m NOT asking for the opportunity to come in person to "inspect", nor to obtain a printed copy of, this electronic record. I’m requesting explicitly that any responsive info be provided to me via the electronic medium / electronic format (in which the copy of this record already exists). If you are unable to fulfill any or all parts of this request, please specifically cite where a reason for denial is justified under NC Public Records Law. **

    Our 911 Dispatch is not under the umbrella of our Sheriff’s Office. I made a request of our 911 Dispatch Director Kevin Sellers to assemble this information. They are the holders of the information you have requested. I’m certain he is working on and trying to comply with your PRR which is extensive. Take Care……Mark
