To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Rhode Island Access to Public Records Act ("APRA"), I hereby request the following records:
All arrest records, including narrative, for the past 24 hours from the time this request is received.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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 10 business days, as the statute requires.
I read the report in the Providence Journal today about public records. There is a link to your report (Access/RI) In that report it indicates that I violated the opens records law in reference to Arrest logs? I would like to know specifically what the violation was and when it occurred. I take the Open records law very seriously and would like to know what went wrong.
I also was wondering what the numbers in the chart mean (1,2,3,4,5 Etc).
I will be out of the office Friday but will return on Monday.
Thanks for your help.
