Managing Increased Public Access to Peace Officer Personnel Records after SB 1421 and AB 748

Category: Webinars on Demand

For decades, California peace officer personnel records could only be obtained through the Pitchess motion procedure.  This regime will change dramatically in 2019, when Senate Bill 1421 and Assembly Bill 748, signed by Governor Jerry Brown on September 30, 2018, take effect.   These new laws allow members of the public to obtain certain, frequently high-profile and controversial, categories of peace officer personnel records by submitting a California Public Records Act (CPRA) request.  These records include audio and video recordings of critical force incidents and incidents in which an officer discharges his or her firearm at a person.  Agencies should expect major influxes of CPRA requests in the new year. The new laws also set out specific timelines for disclosure and exceptions to the production requirements. This webinar will offer practical guidance from leading experts to prepare your agency to navigate these new laws.

Who Should Attend?

Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, City Attorneys, County Counsels, and any sworn and civilian law enforcement personnel with records management responsibilities.
