How do I file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request?

The Fayetteville Police Department accepts FOIA requests on a daily basis and is always willing to assist citizens in obtaining information. Most records requested by FOIA requests, are granted and sent back to the requester. However, some records, such as open case files or cases awaiting adjudication, are not released as they are no longer under our control.

FOIA requests can be filed online in the City of Fayetteville's web Freedom of Information Act web portal. Learn more about FOIA requests here.
