[See Editor’s Note](November 2019) Request related to Buncombe County DA, Sheriff and APD investigation “reports”

All reports from the Sherrif or Asheville Police where [Redacted] was the focus of the investigation. [Editor's Note: Timeline not specified]

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 11/05/19: The above submission has been marked as “Completed.”

As it is written, it is unclear exactly what info. or “reports” are being requested, or what timeline should be responsive to the requested information.

We will assume though that what the sender has intended by requesting “All reports from the Sherrif or Asheville Police”, is meant as “All incident reports, and any other ‘reports’ (by the Sheriff’s Department and Asheville PD), where [Redacted] was the focus of the investigation.”

** Please Note: Sunshine Request does not fulfill requests for things like police reports, calls for service, or criminal / arrest type records for a single individual, incident, or address.

Due to the personal nature of the above requested information, we recommend that the sender reach out directly to the appropriate entities for assistance with the request.

Additionally, Re: “Sherrif or Asheville Police” – It is unclear whether the sender intends that two requests should be made: one to the Sheriff’s Department and one to the City of Asheville. This is not an actionable request we can send to a government entity. Requests to our site should be for a specific type of info., subject, date range, any specific names, and entities (City / State / County, to which the request should be addressed).

If the sender would like to revise and resubmit the request, please do so through the form on the homepage of our site:

– Please specify the exact info you’d like to receive (and from X entity), rather than any “possible” or “potential” info. that could be searched. This will often cut down the amount of time needed to process the requests.

– Please omit any extraneous statements that are not specific to the exact information you’d like to receive.

– Please be as specific as possible in your Message by indicating the exact names, subject matter / keywords, and timelines you’d like to receive. For example:

“Hello City of Asheville, NC. I would like to request all emails sent between City Councilpersons Bert and Ernie from 04/26/19 – 04/30/19 related to Airbnbs on Sesame Street. Thank you for your help!”

Or, “Hello City of Asheville, NC. I would like to request all emails sent between all City Councilpersons and NCDOT from 04/26/19 – 04/30/19 related to traffic complaints on Sesame Street. Thank you for your help!”

Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
