CNPA Legal Counsel Nikki Moore announced last week that she is leaving the association to become counsel to the California Assembly Public Safety Committee. Moore has been with CNPA for a little over four years.

“Nikki was pivotal in several recent CNPA legislative successes including obtaining public access to body cam footage and police personnel records,” General Counsel Jim Ewert said.

“Nikki was a tremendous asset to CNPA members during her time here, advocating for the industry, answering members’ questions on the Helpline, and training journalists — both students and pros — on the rights and risks of news gathering,” Executive Director Tom Newton said. “We wish her well in her new post.”

Members with Legal Helpline questions are encouraged to contact CNPA General Counsel Jim Ewert at 916-288-6013.
