Missing Native Americans - Salem County, NJ

Urban Indigenous Collective filed this request with the Salem County Sheriff of Salem County, NJ.
Est. Completion None
Fix Required


From: Urban Indigenous Collective

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Jersey Open Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Basic information on all cases (open and closed) of missing American Indian/Alaska Native persons (including juveniles) within your region, from 2000 through 2021; this basic information can include but is not limited to: person name, age, DOB, incident date, case closure date, county/jurisdiction in which person was reported missing.

We have attempted to contact the county directly only to find that the sheriff's office is the one to which we should request information from. If this is not the correct info to the sheriff's office, please advise on that contact information.

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 look forward to receiving your response to this request within 7 business days, as the statute requires.
