Bill Summary

Under current law, it is unlawful for a person to make available on the internet the personal information of a law enforcement official, as defined in statute, or a human services worker, as defined in statute, if the dissemination of the personal information poses an imminent and serious threat to the official's or the worker's safety or to the safety of the official's or the worker's immediate family. The bill extends the crime to include certain employees and contractors of the department of corrections who have contact with persons in the custody of the department of corrections and to include public defenders and alternate defense counsel .The bill redefines "law enforcement official" and includes officials covered under that definition within the definition of "protected person". Further, the bill repeals the crime specific to law enforcement officials and includes those officials within the same crime specific to protected persons.

In addition, under current law, human services workers who meet certain requirements specified in statute may submit a written request to a state or local government official to remove personal information from public records that are available on the internet. The bill extends the same protection to law enforcement officials, now defined as "protected persons", and to certain employees and contractors of the department of corrections and to public defenders and alternate defense counsel .
