(November 2022) Request for City of Northwest, NC Government: All emails Sent by any interim, appointed, acting, or hired Police Chief. 01/01/2022 – present day.

Hello City of Northwest, NC Government (Records Officer),

I'd like to make a public records request for the following information under NC Public Records Law.
Ref: https://www.ncleg.net/enactedlegislation/statutes/html/bychapter/chapter_132.html

Please provide all emails Sent by any individual holding the title of Chief of Police [no matter if they were interim, acting, appointed, or hired as Chief] of the Northwest, NC Police Department. During the specific time period of January 01, 2022 through present day (date the query is performed). This request is not subject specific -- I'd like "ALL Emails Sent" during the specified time period.

I am not requesting to come in person to inspect, nor to obtain printed copies of, electronic records. In accordance with NC Public Records Law, I’m requesting explicitly that all responsive records be provided via an electronic medium / format (in which the records should already exist), such as an email, file share, google drive folder, mailed flash drive if necessary, etc.

**I do not have any additional or further clarifying info to provide other than what you see in the message above. 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.**

    Good Afternoon City of Northwest, NC Government / Donna (Mayor cc’ed),

     

    This is my 4th attempt to follow up regarding my public records request above. Sent to Donna on 11/04/2022:
    (November 2022) Request for City of Northwest, NC Government: All emails Sent by any interim, appointed, acting, or hired Police Chief. 01/01/2022 – present day.

     

    I have not received any response.

     

    I also called the City at (910) 655-3110 during the afternoon on 11/29/22, and spoke with someone in Donna’s office. I told them I was following up on our emails that have not been answered, and wanted to make sure the request has been received and check there isn’t another email address where we should be sending them. We provided additional context about the request subject / dates, etc. Donna was out of office, but hopefully received our message.

     

    I’d like to ask again that you please confirm the request has been received on your end, and if / when it will begin being processed. Please provide an anticipated date for completion, and I will follow up around the time you specify.

     

    If I do not hear back from you in a week, I will mark the request as “Denied” on our website.

     

    Thank you!
