OPRA Webinar: The Lyndhurst Decision and Police Records - 10/18/2017

On October 18, 2017 from 11:00am - 12:15pm the New Jersey League of Municipalities will be holding a WEBINAR on the Lyndhurst Decision and Police Records. The recent New Jersey Supreme Court decision in North Jersey Media Group, Inc. v. Township of Lyndhurst found that police Use of Force reports are subject to OPRA unless the government can show that disclosure would be “inimical to the public interest.”  The Court’s reasoning has opened the door to arguments that police dash camera and body camera footage may be subject to OPRA based on the extent that the Attorney General’s Law Enforcement Directive 2015-1 constituted a “law” requiring that footage to be created. The Supreme Court’s Lyndhurst decision has opened the door wide open to common law “right to know” requests for police camera footage.  This webinar will discuss the implications of this case, how to handle such a request, and what it means for Municipal Records Custodians with regards to these types of OPRA requests. CEUs have been approved. Register online.  For Additional information or questions please contact Danielle Holland-Htut at 609-695-3481 ext 118 or dholland@njslom.org.
