Police FOIA Request


The Freedom of Information Act regulates and sets requirements for the disclosure of certain public records of certain public bodies (like Kalamazoo Township) in the state.

“Public record” means a writing prepared, owned, used, in the possession of, or retained by a public body in the performance of an official function from the time it is created.

In general, all records except those specifically cited as exceptions are covered by the FOIA. The records covered include minutes of open meetings, officials’ voting records, staff manuals, among others.

The FOIA permits, but does not require, a public body to withhold from public disclosure certain classes of records, including specific personal information about an individual if the release would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of that individual’s privacy, among others.

A fee may be charged to retrieve and copy records subject to conditions detailed in the documents linked here.
