Limit Public Inspection Of Internal Affairs Report

Concerning measures limiting the public inspection of internal investigations.
2020 Regular Session
Crimes, Corrections, & Enforcement
Bill Summary

Under current law, any completed internal investigation file is open for public inspection. In the case of an exonerated officer, the bill states that the investigation file is only available for inspection if a court issues an order of inspection after finding the requester has a compelling interest in inspecting the investigation file and the requester is a party to the investigation, the complainant, or a person who can demonstrate a viable interest in the investigation.

The bill allows an agency complying with a request for an internal investigation file to bill a reasonable fee for the time involved in complying with the request.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
