Editor’s Note 09/16/20: Related to Item #2 (“I would also like to request the number of Officers who have retired or resigned between 01/01/2020, and 9/14/2020.”)
Please note – In August 2020, we fulfilled a very similar request for the same info, specifically asking for “resignations” at APD from 08/01/19 – 08/31/20 (found here):
“… data regarding “APD resignations” by month, from August 01, 2019 – August 31, 2020. Specifically, I’m only interested in the numbers and reasons given for the resignations.
For Example: “Total of 3 resignations in July 2020 – 1 resignation for better job elsewhere; 1 resignation due to family issues; 1 resignation due to low morale.”
The response we received from AVL Gov in that case was as follows:
“Pursuant to N.C.G.S. §§160A-168(b) and (c), resignation information is confidential personnel record. Therefore, the city has no records responsive to your request.“
We anticipate we will receive the same response related to Item #2 (“resignations”) in the new request above. However, we’re not sure if the same response also applies to “retirements” as well. Therefore, the request we send in will read as follows:
” 2. I would also like to request to know the number of Officers who have “retired” from 01/01/2020 – 09/14/2020.
In a previous request AVL Gov stated that ‘Pursuant to N.C.G.S. §§160A-168(b) and (c), resignation information is confidential personnel record. Therefore, the city has no records responsive to your request.’
I do not know if that response only applies to “resignations” specifically, or if it also applies to “retirements” as well. If so, please specify.”
Thank you for using Sunshine Request!
