Editor’s Note 03/18/21: The above submission has been marked as “Completed”.

Sunshine Request will not fulfill the following types of requests:
  • ☀️ Requests for public safety information specific to a single individual, address, incident or name.
      • This includes police reports, calls for service, complaints / incident reports / citations, criminal / arrest type records, or camera footage. We will, on a case by case basis, fulfill public safety related requests that focus on system-level trends and data. Due to the personal nature of this type of information, we recommend that the sender reach out directly to the appropriate entity for assistance with the request.
  • ☀️ Requests that are incomplete, non-specific, overly broad, or vague.
    ☀️ Requests that are only informational questions [rather than a specific request for public records], and requests that are not addressed to government entities.
