PR 20-07B Farinelli v. City of Pawtucket Supplement

In PR 20-07, this Office determined that the City violated the APRA by withholding in its entirety a police report related to an officer-involved shooting death. We directed the City to disclose the report and its attachments to the Complainant, subject to certain permissible redactions discussed in our prior finding. After the issuance of our finding, the City provided the Complainant with the documents in redacted form. Complainant contended that the City's redactions were improper. We determined that the City's redactions fit within those discussed in PR 20-07, except for one redaction. We directed the City to provide the Complainant with a copy of the relevant page remedying that redaction issue within ten (10) business days.
