Local Police Department / Police Report
My husband committed suicide. When i went to the Police Depart. to ask for a copy of the police report (not the incident report), they refused to give me one. I asked why, i was told cuz they don't do that. I asked if i could just read it there in front of them, they said no. When i did a written request, that mailed response to me was that my request was refused with no reason why.
What happened to the "FOIA" (freedom of information act)? Why can't i get a copy and why won't they tell me the reason why they won't give me one. Aren't they suppose to tell me why my request is being refused?
How, where and what can i do to get a copy of the Police Report of my husbands suicide? Me being the wife and a victim, i should be entitled to a copy of the report.
