Key Award Honors State Patrol Records Officer

WCOG presented a Key Award to Dayal Trusty, a forms and records analyst with the Washington State Patrol, for improving the efficiency of processing public records requests in the office, and then sharing her methods with colleagues.

“Dayal developed a system to process disclosure requests for all eight districts, including the tracking of time spent on each request, final disposition of the request and a log of any redactions made to any given request,” said Heather Anderson, commander of the Communications Division and Trusty’s supervisor.

Trusty oversees public records requests to the state patrol’s communications division, which includes records of radio and telephone communications and logs. She shared her techniques with public records officers in each state patrol district, and helped several catch up with their backlog, Anderson said.

The award was presented recently at the State Patrol headquarters by Toby Nixon, WCOG president.
