The bill makes an internal investigation file (file) of a peace
officer for in-uniform or on-duty conduct that involves a member of the
public subject to an open records request. The bill requires some
information to be redacted before complying with the open records
request. The bill allows the custodian of the file to first provide a
summary of the file to the requester and then allows the requester access

to the file after the requester has reviewed the summary. Under the bill,
a custodian of a file in which there is an ongoing criminal case can deny
inspection of the file. The file becomes open for inspection after all the
charges are dismissed or the defendant is sentenced.
