[See Editor’s Note] (September 2019) Please reopen request for Jackson County, NC Sheriff Dept. drug arrests

Hello Jackson County, NC Sheriff's Dept.

I'd like to make a public records request for arrest records for all illicit drug activity, January01, 2014 to present (when this query is performed).

This request was previously made anonymously via www.sunshinerequest.com, and the result indicated that a subpoena would be necessary.

However, some NC counties have similar information available and searchable (i.e. Henderson County). Also, this information is published in local papers on a weekly basis. It would seem logical the JC Sheriff's Department would also have these records.

Based on what other jurisdictions are making available, the need for subpoena does not appear accurate nor consistent with public records requests. Therefore, I'd like to request that the previous request (found at is re-submitted and "Reopened."

Thank you for your assistance.
Have a great day!
