    By anonymous
    Mar 24, 2015

    You will need to consider which police department is the one which made the report of arrest, incident, accident or field report. The Connecticut State Police provides accident reports online through a service named Docview where the public can make their requests. Accident or incident reports are also available by mailing the Request for Copy of Report form to the state police's reports and records division. It is important to note that the state police provides reports taken by their officers. Arrest or incidents in areas not under the state police's jurisdiction need to be requested by the law enforcement department which made out the report. Individual local police departments records divisions provide arrest and incident reports routinely to persons related to the case and should have a process and policy in place. Many government agencies will have a designated public information officer or records clerk to process these requests.

    1968 President Lydon Johnson enacted the gun control act due to the assassinations of Robert F Kenedy, Martin Luther King and Malcom X. In 1993, President Clinton signed the Brady act into law after President Reagan’s near fatal assassination attempt. The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) was implemented by the FBI on November, 30th 1998. The NICS is a national center that performs background checks for Federal Firearms Licensees or also referred to as FFLs. All FFLs must conduct a NICS search. This process begins with an applicant purchasing a firearm to complete and submit the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearm (ATF) form 4473. This form can be submitted by calling 1-877-FBI-NICS or by logging into the NICS E-Check website.

    Government employee salaries are made public by some states and their entities. Although government employee salaries and benefits are public information, some towns or places may not have it available for the public to view. Requests to see government employee compensation can be made, in some cases they may be in the news due to an earlier report. Salaries can also be searched by the position held by the individual. The state of Connecticut has the information for their state employees online, however, cities, towns and counties may have a different way of obtaining that information.
