The Mayor says the City has received 150 FOIL requests in 2020 as of meeting time, an increase which he says is partially because of the change in laws regarding the release of police discipline records.Jamestown City Clerk Jennifer Williams says the utilization of NextRequest will simplify the process for the City. “The FOIL process is very antiquated in our office,” Williams said. “This will free up our time…..and should really streamline the process.”Williams says anyone who submits a request will instantly receive a response stating the City received the request, and the City will receive a message saying a request was submitted. From there, the official in charge of the department that the request involves can respond with the records if they’re releasable.Williams says that various “sensitive” matters, such as requests for police discipline records, are also forwarded to Corporation Counsel, Elliot Raimondo, for review to determine whether or not the request can be met.The service will be free to the City, according to Sundquist.The Mayor says anyone who is dissatisfied with the FOIL response can file an appeal with his office.Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rodrigo Rivera additionally highlighted the support that the Colombian police have given to the Honduran authorities, facilitating the rescue of fourteen people who had been kidnapped in that country. Minister Pascua, for his part, also highlighted the results of cooperation with Colombia, as well as Colombia’s experience in the fight against different transnational threats. “Colombia’s experiences and successes against organized crime are extraordinarily helpful for us,” he said, recalling that both countries have suffered similar problems arising from drug trafficking and associated crime. “We’ve always maintained that level of cooperation that should exist between two sister countries struggling to combat a problem that should be seen as a regional problem, a continental problem, and a problem for humanity,” the Honduran minister specified.
