PR 16-12 Clark v. Town of Glocester / Clark v. Glocester Police Department - No Violation

This Department has long held that "in order for this Department to have jurisdiction to inquire into an APRA matter, the complainant must first have requested a record from a public body, and second, the complainant must have been denied access to the requested record." Schmidt v. Ashaway Volunteer Fire Association et. al., PR 99-21. Because there was no evidence or indication that the Complainant had made the APRA requests at issue, he lacked standing to complain about alleged violations stemming from these APRA requests.
