PR 20-13 Almeida v. City of Providence No violation

The Complainant alleged that the City violated the APRA when it withheld a particular police incident report under R.I. Gen. Laws 38-2-2(4)(D). Based on our in camera review of the document, we observed that the incident report contained sensitive personal information about multiple individuals and pertained to a matter where an arrest was not made. We were also not provided with evidence that disclosure would further the public interest. We accordingly found that the City permissibly withheld the incident report.
