This request is denied because it is over broad. The City does not organize its databases or electronic/paper records in a way that allows the City to search without extensive research for the specific subset of records containing the select information you request, that may or may not exist. Ohio R.C. 149.43(B)(2); and, State ex Rel. Shaughnessy v. Cleveland, 2016-Ohio-8447.
Such information may be included in police reports. To search these records the City will need the case number or name of the suspect/victim and date of the incident. Please revise your request and resubmit it with this information.
