The GBPD has altered its procedures to comply with a change in the law
WHAT IS NO LONGER GENERALLY AVAILABLE?
Under 18 U.S.C. § 2721(c), the following information about a specific person is not available to the public:
- Date of birth
- DMV Photograph
- Social Security Number
- Telephone Number
- Medical or disability information
- Driver’s license numbers and physical descriptors
- Vehicle registration plate numbers and related information
- Vehicle identification Numbers (VIN)
HOW CAN I GET PERSONAL INFORMATION?
In order to access the information above, a requester must complete a DPPA Exemption form and submit it along with the request for information. If a requester fails to submit a DPPA Exemption form, he/she will receive records without the above information and will still be billed for the cost of the record.
IMPORTANT: If you are looking for a name, address, phone number, or other personal information about someone, you will not receive that information unless you meet one of the federal exemptions!
We seek your patience in responding to your request(s). Given the nature of the Federal law, we must examine each page of each report and redact (black out) ten (10) different data elements wherever they are found. This is a laborious and time-consuming process that must be handled in addition to our regular public service duties.
