OPRA Winfreed

The gears of Trenton government ground to a halt again, with an Open Public Records Act request being denied on the basis that the documents in question do not actually exist. What documents do you ask? I attempted to obtain any orders, memos, e-mails, or anything else having to do with deployment of four police officers and their associated equipment to take part in the funeral procession of Police Director Santiago's father-in-law.

The reply I received is that such documents do not exist. This seems very odd to me. Wouldn't the deployment of officers require some sort of documentation? Did the police captain involved simply order the officers to go with Santiago to Newark?
