A South Dakota Senate committee has approved a measure that would require police logs to be open to the public.
State law currently allows law enforcement agencies the discretion to release information about calls for service to the public. The Judiciary Committee voted unanimously to require those law enforcement agencies to make those logs available to the public.
Those logs can provide information about calls for service that reveal the date, time, general location and general subject of the calls.
The committee added language to the bill providing that police logs made available to the public cannot reveal the identity of people involved in police calls dealing with mental health, chemical dependency or abuse.
