Police contract includes notifying officers of public records requests

The Long Beach City Council’s new contract with the local police union includes a clause that would require notifying officers of certain public records requests and, when possible, telling them who is requesting the information, Long Beach Post reports.

The contract’s clause puts it at odds with Senate Bill 1421, which went into effect earlier this year. It grants members of the public with a new right to obtain the personnel and investigatory records of officers using deadly force, involved in sustained acts of on-duty sexual assault or engaging in dishonesty, The Press-Telegram’s article explains.
