APRA PR16-30 NBC 10 v. Rhode Island Department of Public Safety No Violation

The Department of Public Safety did not violate the APRA when it redacted the identities and contact information for third parties but released the substantive information related to these third parties and when it redacted the subject-matter of one incident or circumstance involving the subject of the report. In both cases, the Complainant provided little to no public interest in disclosure and this interest did not outweigh the privacy interest. The remaining portions of the report were released by the DPS unredacted.
