FAC Supports SB 1000 to Ensure Public Access to Law Enforcement Radio Transmissions

FAC supports Senate Bill 1000, a bill being considered by the California Legislature that would ensure press and public access to law enforcement radio transmissions. SB 1000, authored by Sen. Josh Becker and co-sponsored by the California News Publishers Association and the California Broadcasters Association, would require all law enforcement agencies to restore or preserve public access after agencies began encrypting transmissions in response to a memo from the California Department of Justice. Read the bill’s fact sheet.
