Notice Regarding Police Blotter

The Troy Times-Tribune has requested, but has not received, the Troy Police Department's police blotter information for publication since the beginning of September, 2015. As of November 9, 2015, we have not received any arrest or citation information, despite Freedom of Information Act and Illinois law requirements that such information be made public. The last blotter that the newspaper received was published in our August 27, 2015 edition. Update: On November 9, 2015, a blotter was posted on the city's website for the week of November 2-November 8.
We have been told by local officials that the data cannot be created and made available because of a software issue since transitioning to the New World System, and that other departments and municipalities in the area also are unable to provide a blotter list for publication by the media.
Open records law in Illinois is codified through the state's Freedom of Information Act at 5ILCS 140/1 to 11. Police blotters and chronologically maintained arrest records are considered open and public records (ILCS 140/7(1)(d)(1).
Also considered open to the public and to be provided to the news media are arrest reports, as cited under a provision of the State Records Act, 5ILCS 160/4a; the article of the Civil Administration Code of Illinois concerning the Department of State Police, 20ILCS 2605/2605-302; the Local Records Act, 50 ILCS205/3b; and the Campus Security Act, 110 ILCS 12/15. 
Investigation records are closed, as are compilations of criminal histories except for specific exemptions listed in the Act (ILCS 140/7(1)(d)(I) to (v).
