This bill protects the home addresses of current and retired law enforcement officers from being released by governmental entities. Currently, this information is considered a government record and is available to the public via P.L.1963, c.73 (C.47:1A-1 et seq.), commonly known as the open public records act. The bill excludes law enforcement officers' home addresses from the definition of "government record." The bill also requires custodians of government records to redact the addresses from any records prior to granting access, unless the information is sought for use by a governmental agency in carrying out its functions, or a private person seeking to enforce a child support order. The bill further provides that requests for law enforcement officers' home addresses are to be denied. Law enforcement officer is defined in the bill as, "any person who is employed as a permanent full-time member of any State, county or municipal law enforcement agency, department, or division" of those governments who is statutorily empowered to act for the detection, investigation, arrest, conviction, detention, or rehabilitation of persons violating the criminal laws of this State and statutorily required to successfully complete a training course approved by, or certified as being substantially equivalent to such an approved course, by the Police Training Commission pursuant to P.L.1961, c.56 (C.52:17B-66 et seq.)."
