To Whom It May Concern:
I represent Columbia County, Arkansas in the capacity of County Civil Attorney. Your request for information from the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office pursuant to the Arkansas Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) dated May 24, 2018 was forwarded to me for advice concerning the requirement of disclosure under Arkansas law. Your request for information is denied for the following reason: The State of Arkansas FOIA limits the disclosure of non-exempt public records to the citizens of Arkansas. Therefore, MuckRock News is not entitled to receive the information requested.

County Civil Attorney
