General Order 204.1 - Release of Information to the News Media


Friday, April 13, 2001
Reference: 
GO – SPT – 204.01

The public has a right to certain types of information regarding police activity, and the Department is obligated to provide this information accurately, honestly, professionally and without bias.  As community members often obtain the majority of their information from the news media, the MPD is encouraged to work in cooperation with the media. However, there are times when police have valid reasons for not releasing information that may come to the attention or in possession of the Department.
