Vermont Attorney General Wants Records Related to Police Misconduct Investigations Released

Vermont Attorney General Bill Sorrell, citing three incidents of Hartford police using force against unarmed citizens, told the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday that he favors changing the law to allow public release of records of investigations into police wrongdoing.

Sorrell, who has repeatedly refused to release records of such investigations, explained the reason for his change during the first day of hearings held by the committee to hear proposals for amending the law that would allow access to records that have been traditionally kept secret by police.
