SB 1421: What's Happening Now? An Update on the Latest Developments

Category: Webinars on Demand

For decades, California peace officer personnel records could only be obtained through the Pitchess motion procedure.  This regime changed dramatically in January 2019, when Senate Bill 1421 took effect, allowing public access under the California Public Records Act to peace officer personnel records relating to certain types of frequently high-profile and controversial incidents. Agencies are already receiving numerous broad requests for these records, some of which seek police records going back decades. In addition, guidance from the Attorney General and other state attorneys direct local agencies not to dispose of any records that may be disclosed under SB 1421, even where allowed by the agency’s retention policy or by statute. And with these developments comes the prospect of litigation from affected officers and their unions over the new law’s privacy impacts. This webinar will offer practical guidance on how to navigate and adapt to the new and rapidly-developing legal environment and will look ahead to what might come next.

Who Should Attend?

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