PR 14-26 West Broadway Associates v. Portsmouth Police Department – No Violation

The Portsmouth Police Department did not violate the APRA when it withheld from disclosure incident reports that did not lead to an arrest. This Department found that the privacy interests outweighed any interest the public may have in disclosure of such a report because when the police determine an arrest is not warranted, disclosure of related records can reasonably be expected, in most cases, to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
