MEMORANDUM

Posted: February 1, 2017 09:46 AM
From: Representative Martina A. White
To: All House members
Subject: Co-Sponsorship: WHITE--Protection for Law Enforcement
 
In the near future, I will be re-introducing legislation regarding the release of information about a law enforcement officer involved in a discharge of a firearm or use of force during the performance of their official duties. The name and identifying information of the law enforcement officer may not be released to the public before the investigation is complete or before 30 days after the incident has occurred, whichever occurs first.

At the conclusion of the investigation or 30 days, the information may be released to the public, unless doing so will create a risk of harm to the person or property of the officer or an immediate family member. In addition, release may be made at any time if the officer provides written consent.


Introduced as HB27
