Mars Hill Police Special Squads

Dear Mars Hill Police Department,

Can you please produce the number of times by year that your Swat Team, Hostage Negotiation Team, Bomb Squad, and Public Order / Riot Squad was activated for deployment for the past three years. That is 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Thank you very much for your assistance with this request!

**Editor’s Note: We apologize for the delay. it wasn’t apparent who to contact and we couldn’t locate email addresses, so we called Mars Hill and found out we should contact Michael Garrison, Chief of Police mgarrison@townofmarshill.org

    Hi Mars Hill Police Department,

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    We recently received a request for information that may be available in your office. If there’s another party that we should be contacting about this request then please let us know.

     

    Here are the details sent by the requester:
