Lawmakers could repeal law used to shield law enforcement disciplinary records

This week, Governor Andrew Cuomo referenced a law in New York that’s more than 40 years old, which shields law enforcement’s disciplinary records from becoming part of the public record.

Now, state lawmakers could push to repeal that law, or modify it in such a way that those records can’t be blocked by the public.

Cuomo said that the law prevents some local leaders from releasing information that otherwise would be publicly disclosed.

Meanwhile, the union for New York State Police say the Governor has shown no support for them.
