Hi Caitlin,

Attached please find via pdf attachment the City of North Charleston Police Department's Retention Schedule. The top sheet is the most updated version and it replaces some of the City's older schedules. However, the replaced schedules are still in the second document. For instance, in the old retention schedule (dated 2000), the files named 'Chief's Files' are now Office of Professional Standards files. Hope it's not too confusing.

Thank you,
Beth Woodall
