Dear Ms. Gencarelli,

Thank you for your response. I had requested two things: the full police logs as well as any MVA reports. You sent the MVA reports, but I still need the following to complete this OPRA request:

Police dispatch logs for all incidents of police dispatched to the following 3 addresses from 8/1/20-Present:

15 E. Moccasin Drive
1001 Route 70
38 Pine Ridge Boulevard

Yours sincerely,

Resident

Good Morning,

Those are all the records responsive to your request. Manchester Township does not maintain a dispatch log. If there is anything else we can do to help you please feel free to call the office.

Have a great day!

Dear Ms. Gencarelli,

If I may refer you to this response you sent a year ago from August 2020: https://opramachine.com/request/police_c...

Which includes this "log":

CallID When Reported Typ Nature P Location Cty
M17-406 02:16:36 06/23/17 l Area Check 0 1001 ROUTE 70 E; MANCHESTER PLAZA MAN
M17-706 19:54:05 06/25/17 l Traffic Stop 0 1001 RTE 70; MANCHESTER TOWN MAN
M17-709 20:25:52 06/25/17 l Disabled Veh 2 1001 RTE 70; MANCHESTER TOWN MAN

This is the data I am referring to. It's the log of all the activity for the specific address, such as 1001 Route 70 from 2017-2020. I would like this same file now for the past year (August 2020-Present).

Perhaps I called it the wrong term this time around. In 2020, I had asked for "All Police CAD reports for Manchester Plaza (1001 Route 70) for 2016-2020." In your response, you sent just the item I would call a "dispatch log", not the actual CAD reports, which you stated would be too voluminous.

If I need to file a new OPRA request, please let me know.

Thank you, Resident

Beth Gencarelli, Manchester Township

Dear Ms. Gencarelli,

Thank you for sending the requested records. The information you sent is what I call "police dispatch logs" when I request them from other townships, so I just assumed that is what they were called. Sorry for the confusion! Thanks for your time & assistance!!

Yours sincerely,

Resident
