The Office of the Clerk of the City of Newark has assigned your request
tracking number PD-21-0947 and forwarded it to the Police Division.
In order to gather the documents responsive to your requests, the OPRA
unit sends your requests to the respective City Departments, which
actually created, received, or retained these documents. Since the State
of Emergency, crucial City Staff have retired, become sick, and work a
staggered schedule, which makes the time needed to gather responsive
documents far longer than usual.
This Office received your request on July 27, 2021 and anticipates a
response on or about August 27, 2021.
The Office of the Clerk of the City of Newark has received the DVD
responsive to your OPRA request. However, we have no address to which it
should be sent. Please identify the address to which you would like it
