To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to Virginia Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
A copy of the arrest logs and arrest reports from the years 2014 and 2015 where arrests were made by Special Conservators of the Peace to include the following information at minimum:
1) Full name of the arrested adult;
3) Year of birth of the arrested adult;
4) Charge or charges;
5) Date of the arrest;
6) Time of the arrest;
7) Gender of the arrested adult;
8) Race of the arrested adult.
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 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 5 business days, as the statute requires.
Hi Ms. Sitrin,
The requested records do not exist at DCJS as SCOPs are not required to report or share such information or records with us.
The only other public bodies that may have this information is either the individual courts located within each locality (juvenile, general district and circuit court) or the government employer of SCOPS. As I mentioned on the phone, some SCOPS work for public agencies and others work for private corporations.
A list of each locality’s courts can be found:
Juvenile courts in VA - http://www.courts.state.va.us/courts/jdr.html
General district courts in Va – http://www.courts.state.va.us/courts/gd.html
Circuit courts in VA - http://www.courts.state.va.us/courts/circuit.html
The localities in VA can be found here – http://www.virginia.org/citiestownsandcountiesrelatedlinks/
Sorry we can’t be of more help.
