OIP POSTS TWO NEW OPINIONS AND SEMIANNUAL LOG REPORTS DUEPosted on Jan 31, 2022 in Featured, What's New
The State Office of Information Practices (OIP) has posted two new opinions involving the Uniform Information Practices Act (UIPA), Chapter 92F, Hawaii Revised Statutes, on the Opinions page of its website at oip.hawaii.gov.
In OIP Op. Ltr. No. F22-01, OIP conducted extensive analyses under the UIPA’s Part III relating to personal records and Part II relating to government records and determined that the Kauai Police Department properly withheld witnesses’ names, addresses, statements and supporting evidence in police reports, as well as the video from body worn cameras that would have identified the witnesses. In U Memo 22-1, OIP concluded that a Senator’s office properly denied a request for a record that does not exist after conducting a reasonable search for responsive records.
OIP would also like to remind agencies that their FY 2022 Semiannual Log Reports and Checklists are due today. Mahalo!
