Communications

From: Ben Hallman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to North Carolina Public Records Law (G.S. §§ 132-1 through 132-10), I hereby request the following documents:

Police reports for every motor vehicle break-in and/or larceny from a motor vehicle that occurred in 2015. I want to determine how many vehicle break-ins occurred in your jurisdiction and basic information about each, including what, if anything, was stolen. I want to see all the information contained in each police report, including, but not limited to, the time and location of each crime; the criminal's method of entry; the make and model of the vehicle; descriptions of what was stolen and where from inside the vehicle each item was stolen; victims' names, ages, addresses and contact information; and the narrative summary of what happened.

If this data is collated in a digital file or database, providing the results of a search query that yields this information would be an acceptable substitute to physical copies of the reports.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,

Ben Hallman

Mr. Hallman,

Attached is a digital file containing the requested items, as specified below. There were 2,669 total reports for 2015, including 1,983 LARCENY - FROM MOTOR VEHICLE reports and 686 LARCENY - AUTOMOBILE PARTS OR ACCESSORIES reports.

Included Items

· the time and location of each crime

· the criminal's method of entry

· the make and model of the vehicle

· descriptions of what was stolen

· victims' names, ages, addresses

Items Not Included

· where from inside the vehicle each item was stolen

· the narrative summary of what happened

The above two items were not included because they constitute “records of criminal investigations,” which are not public records pursuant to NCGS 132-1.4. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,
