City Attorney’s request for APD audit recommendations

In this July 26 letter, City Attorney Bob Oast requests that Buncombe County District Attorney Ron Moore release part of the undisclosed Asheville Police Department evidence room audit containing recommendations for improving the facility’s practices.

Oast’s request

The request followed the July 24 Asheville City Council meeting, where auditor Mike Wright presented a report that showed the evidence room in deep disarray. At that meeting, APD Chief William Anderson noted that access to Wright’s recommendations could help his staff improve evidence room procedures.

Local media, including Xpress, have sued Moore and the city for their failure to release the audit. That lawsuit goes to court Sept. 4.
