The role and responsibility that law enforcement personnel have in responding to requests for information.
Going back to the earliest organized societies in history, records of some sort have been kept. In the United States, there has been a common law expectation to access court records, which has evolved into access to records of most government entities, both on a federal, state, and local level. With the adoption of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in 1966, the federal government established the right of citizens to access to government records. Many states followed, some even including access to records in the state constitution. In Florida, the earliest public records law was passed in 1909, and in 1992 was made part of the Florida Constitution. Today, Florida is known as having the most expansive public records law in the country.
Law enforcement agencies face many challenges in carrying out their responsibility to investigate crimes and arrest those who commit crimes. That responsibility can create unique issues when the public expects transparency in government operations. This class will discuss the role and responsibility that law enforcement personnel have in responding to requests for information.
