House Bill 31 would grant the Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission (POST) – the state agency that certifies Wyoming peace officers – the authority to obtain personnel files while investigating alleged misconduct.

The ACLU of Wyoming supports House Bill 31. This bill ensures POST is granted access to police personnel records for purposes of investigating or determining a peace officer’s initial certification, continuing certification, suspension, revocation, or termination.

This bill would make it possible for police personnel who are threats to the community to be taken off the street.
