Effective March 16, 2020, the Radnor Township Municipal Building is closed due to the Governor’s and Radnor Township’s Covid -19 Disaster Declarations. Because of the closure, all time requirements under the Right To Know Law are suspended since under the Act time is measured in business days. Once the Township offices are reopened, the time requirements for Township responses will be re-started and existing or new requests will be processed by the Township’s Open Records Officer.
Radnor Township adopted a Public Records Access Policy to assure compliance with the provisions of the Pennsylvania "Right-to-Know Law," 65 P.S. §§ 66.1 - 66.9, as amended by Act 3 of 2008, effective January 1, 2009.
How Do I Request a Township Police Recording (Video & Audio)?
Act 22 of 2017 (specifically, Chapter 67A of the Act) established a new process for requesting audio and video recordings in the possession of law enforcement agencies in Pennsylvania. Act 22 applies to individuals seeking "any audio recording or video recording made by a law enforcement agency." The Right-to-Know Law does not apply to requests for these recordings.
Under Act 22, a request for an audio or video recording in the possession of a law enforcement agency must be made within 60 days of the date the recording was made. Requests must be submitted in person or by certified mail (§67A03). A written request must be submitted to the Agency Open Records Officer (AORO) for the law enforcement agency that possesses the record. The request is not officially received until it is personally delivered to the AORO, or when it is marked as "delivered" by certified mail to Open Records Officer, Radnor Township, 301 Iven Avenue, Wayne, PA 19087-5297.
