    Good afternoon Sunshine Request,

     

    Please find the Asheville Police Department’s responses to the requests below. Please note we are still working on the remaining requested documents.

     

    The Asheville Police Department’s current record management system (RMS) contains records dating back to late 2004. Therefore, we are unable to pull information dating back to 2000, per the request. All information below reflects a time period of roughly September 2004 to present.

     

    1. Sgt. Miller was assigned 54 investigations. Of those investigations 2 remain open (as of 6/13).
    2. Sgt. Miller issued 46 citations.
    3. Sgt. Miller made 80 arrests.
    4. Sgt. Miller was either the primary (initiating officer) or backup officer on 331 traffic stops. Traffic Stop Reports that are reported to the state are anonymous and are therefore not public record pursuant to public record laws.
    5. During this time period Sgt. Miller worked in different APD divisions and on a number of teams and shifts, each of which have a different work schedule. Our Patrol officers work 12-hour shifts from either 6-6 or 7-7 (day and night shifts). Criminal Investigations Section (CIS) detectives and Sgts. work four days a week for 10 hour shift (with either a Monday or Friday off). We have a number of specialty teams which work varying schedules.

     

    Thank you,
    Sarah
