2021 Regular Session

Bill Summary

The bill allows the attorney general to disclose to law enforcement personnel any materials or information obtained through the implementation or operation of the safe2tell program (program) if the attorney general reasonably deems such disclosure necessary for the prevention of imminent physical harm or serious bodily injury to one or more persons.

The bill permits a court to issue a search warrant upon the request of a law enforcement agency, public safety agency, or district attorney, under seal, for program materials identifying a reporting party if the court, following an in camera review, determines probable cause exists that a reporting party to the program knowingly used the program in the commission of false reporting of an emergency. The court may lift the sealing only on a motion of a district attorney upon showing of good cause following an in camera review of the information.
