Notice of Brief Postponement of Final Comment Period for Policy 1809

Exculpatory Evidence Disclosure Requirements

Based on the extensive, thoughtful feedback BPD has received regarding the initial draft of Policy 1809, Exculpatory Evidence Disclosure Requirements, as well as discussions BPD has had with prosecuting authorities about providing prosecutors secure, confidential, electronic access to BPD's disciplinary records database, BPD needs more time to work with the Monitoring Team and the Department of Justice to revise the draft policy and issue a final draft for additional public comment. Accordingly, the deadline to release the final draft policy for additional public comment has been extended to August 13. This second and final comment period will run through August 27.
