Good Afternoon Buncombe County,
We recently received another request via www.sunshinerequest.com for information that may be available in your office.
Here are the details:
Subject: “Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office”
“1. SECTION 1. Sec. 5.4 of General Assembly of North Carolina Session 2007 House Bill 1197 Ratified Bill that created the Personnel Advisory Board for the Sheriff’s Department of Buncombe County clearly states that “The secretary shall keep the minutes of the proceedings of the Board and shall be the custodian of all papers and records pertaining to the business of the Board, and shall perform such other duties as the Board may direct. All of the records of the Board shall be open to public inspection, during normal business hours at their place of keeping, except where otherwise prohibited by law.”

There is no section specifically under SECTION 2.(a) that exempts the Personnel Advisory Board minutes from public records.

2. The Buncombe County Sheriff’s Office 2015 Annual Report states that the sheriff’s office follows the Family Justice Center model for dealing with domestic violence calls.
