Program Description:

Join NHMA's Executive Director Margaret Byrnes and Legal Services Counsel Stephen Buckley who will share insights and strategies to assist law enforcement agencies in handling governmental record matters arising under the Right-to-Know Law. 

The disclosure of police records is governed in part by the Right-to-Know Law and in part by rules imported from federal law under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).  This workshop will answer many questions about withholding records compiled for law enforcement purposes when disclosure would interfere with enforcement proceedings or based on other FOIA factors.  Attention will also be paid to disclosure exemptions found in other New Hampshire statutes governing Body Worn Cameras, motor vehicle records, gun licenses, police personnel records, and the retention of police records.

If you register and do not attend and do not cancel at least 48 hours in advance, you will still be charged the cost of the workshop, which covers refreshments, materials, and administrative processing fees.
