Again, the City of Rockford has yet DENIED another Freedom Of Information Act request.
As you know the city of Rockford has DENIED numerous FOIA requests from us. There should no issues releasing a police report or redacting information on open cases, according to civil rights attorneys and the NCRA and RCFP.
- We have had some people from other organizations and also regular citizens file similar FOIA requests in the past, and they were APPROVED.
- But yet Rockford Scanner FOIA requests were DENIED. We are beginning to think this is now targeted at Rockford Scanner.
We have contacted the Illinois Attorney General office.
Darrell Erdman keeps using the excuse that is is open cases and may interfere with a case.
But yet others file similar stuff and it is approved…
There should no issues releasing a police report or redacting information on open cases, according to civil rights attorneys and the NCRA and RCFP.
Speaking of, we want to send a special shout out to those who have been assisting us with the FOIA requests. You guys and gals are awesome!
So much for transparency…
