(October 2022) Request for Buncombe County, NC Sheriff’s Office: Daily inmate population (federal, state, and other county or state inmates) at Bunc. Co. Detention Facility 2018 – 2022

Hello Buncombe County, NC Sheriff's Office (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 the “daily inmate population” at the Buncombe County Detention Facility for federal inmates, state inmates, and other county or state inmates, for the years of 2018 - 2022 (as of the present day).

** 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. **

Editor’s Note to Aaron: We acknowledge that a similar records request was fulfilled by your office on July 06, 2022: https://www.sunshinerequest.com/records_request/june-2022-request-for-buncombe-county-nc-sheriffs-office-average-daily-jail-population-at-bunc-co-jail-from-2012-2022/

In that case, however, the request asked for “... the average daily Jail population at the Buncombe County Jail for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022”.

The new request above specifies that the info should now relate to the “total daily population” and particularly for “federal, state, and other county or state inmates” 2018 - 2022. If it’s possible to break down the information in that way.

Thank you for your assistance!

    Hello Sunshine Requests,

     

    I believe our public-facing dashboards provide the requested information.

     

    All 5 of our dashboards regarding the jail population and demographics of our detainees can be found at:
    https://www.buncombecounty.org/transparency/default.aspx#sec-service-accountability

     

    This dashboard specifically breaks out the yearly average ADP by category as requested (a bit more detail even ..):

    This dashboard breaks out the averages for 2022, with more detailed info from the last week, with a bit of a lag:

    Please let me know if this completes the request, I think it does, but let me know if not.

     

    Aaron
