WPD Chief Gary Gemme just ended an extended interview on WTAG with Jordan Levy, responding to criticisms he has delayed on responding to a Telegram request for public records relating to citizen complaints against officer Mark Rojas.
Essentially, Chief Gemme’s argument boils down to a)We’ve always been an open, transparent process. b)Records relating to internal and personnel records are the hardest to sift through and the most time-consuming and complicated to release, due to other privacy laws and concerns, and c)We’re also in the midst of a huge internal investigation. (Which is being handled by the Attorney General’s office now)
And, said Gemme, the records should be released within 30 days.
