    Hi all,

     

    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 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.

     

    In June 2018, we received and sent in a request to APD for information that may be available in their office. We have reached out to apdopenrecords@atlantaga.gov and apd-publicaffairs@atlantaga.govseveral times to ask for confirmation that they are in receipt of the request, but have yet to receive a reply.

     

    Can you please let us know whether you are able to assist, and if there is another entity we should be contacting about the request instead? We’re happy to do so.

     

    Here are the details sent by the requester:

     

    Subject: “Over Policing in Atlanta?”

     

    Message: “I’d like to know average officer staffing per capita. That is # of policemen per citizens in the “downtown ” and “metropolitan” areas of the Atlanta Police Dept in GA for the year to date.

     

    Thank you for your help obtaining these figures.”

    Thank you very much for your assistance.
    Have a great afternoon!
