Report Recommendation 3.4

Pillar 3: Technology and Social Media

3.4 Report Recommendation: Federal, state, local, and tribal legislative bodies should be encouraged to update public record laws. 

BRPD Alignment

Although this recommendation is not applicable to local law enforcement, BRPD complies with all public records laws, and as a matter of public interest has made policy changes to allow for the accelerated release of Digital Media Evidence in certain circumstances. (See Public Release of Critical Incident Recordings.)
