Acting police chief fined for violating Sunshine Reform Act

Posted: Updated:

Acting Chief of Police Steve Ignacio has been ordered to pay a $1,000 fine from his own pocket for violating the Sunshine Reform Act.

In February, Attorney Tom Fisher sent a Freedom of Information Request to Ignacio and then filed a lawsuit. Fisher was seeking copies of GPD's firearm and holstering policies and directives. Ignacio initially refused but after guidance from the Office of the Attorney General he complied and sent a response but certain portions redacted.

Attorney Fisher said some of the responses should not have been redacted. Although Judge Maria Fitzpatrick didn't have a problem with the redacted responses, she did have issue with the fact that Ignacio initially refused to comply with the FOIA request and therefore issued the $1,000 sanction.

Fisher represented former Lt. Gov. Ray Tenorio's alleged gun grabbing incident, which he was found not guilty of.
