PR 17-03 Harris v. City of Providence No Violation

The Complainant alleged the City violated the APRA when it produced some documents in response to her APRA request, yet provided additional documents in response to a request filed by another individual that the Complainant claimed was responsive to her APRA request. The Complainant's APRA request sought: "[a]ll logs maintained by the Providence Police Department of all calls received * * *" Upon review of the other individual's request, his request specifically sought "all incident reports and/or calls for service for the entity known as * * *" Having compared the two requests, we found that they were not similar and sought different documents. There was no violation of the APRA.
