-total number of civilian complaints reported and the total number sustained, separated by year (for example, 8 complaints in 2013, 2 complaints sustained in 2013, 4 complaints in 2014, 1 complaint sustained in 2014, etc.)
-total number of use of force complaints reported and the total number sustained from 2013-2019, separated by year

Hi, thanks for sending this. The information that was sent appears to be the list of police shootings (request item number 5) and the list of complaints that were sustained (part of request number 2). Can you please send the remaining requested items, including the total list of civilian complaints (not just those that were sustained) and the information regarding use of force incidents (other than police shootings)?

Thank you,

Sam

From: Aurora Police Department

Hi,

This should have been sent out to you already. I am reattaching the documents. Sorry for any confusion.
