Join NHMA’s Legal Services Counsel Stephen Buckley and Municipal Services Counsel Jonathan Cowal who will share insights and strategies to assist law enforcement agencies in handling governmental record requests arising under the RSA 91-A, 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 the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). This workshop will address the release of records compiled for law enforcement purposes, and when release can be denied where disclosure would interfere with enforcement proceedings or based on other FOIA factors.? 

The presenters will provide an in-depth analysis of how to apply the privacy vs. public balancing test to information being requested for release, they will go over some recent caselaw and court decisions that have changed the landscape of certain aspects of RSA 91-A, and they will also address some important strategies for mitigating the burden associated with Right-to-Know requests as well as some policies other law enforcement agencies have successfully implemented.

Attendees will receive an electronic copy of NHMA's publication, New Hampshire's Right-to-Know Law 2023 edition.  Additional materials such as the PowerPoint presentation will also be distributed electronically. No printouts of the materials or hard copy of the publication will be provided.

Pre-registration and pre-payment is required.  If you register but cannot attend, a recording of the workshop will be provided as long as payment has been received.

Refund of the full registration fee will be made if cancellation notification is received 48 hours in advance. Cancellation less than 48 hours in advance, including no-shows, will result in you being charged the full cost of the workshop.
