Connecticut’s Police Reform Bill and Access to Police Records
Mark J. Sommaruga, attorney in Pullman & Comley's Labor, Employment Law and Employee Benefits practice, will be speaking on a panel in a webinar sponsored by the Connecticut Bar Association on Connecticut's police reform bill and access to police records.
Connecticut’s police reform bill included a host of accountability measures aimed at improving the way police officers do their job and interact with the communities they serve. This panel will discuss the origin and intent of the change to Connecticut’s Freedom of Information Act law and also provide a look ahead to its practical effect for attorneys and the news media.
Attendees will learn about Connecticut’s Freedom of Information Act, specifically the obligations it imposes on state agencies with respect to the disclosure of disciplinary records, in light of a recent amendment effected through Connecticut’s police reform bill.
