AN ACT TO PROVIDE FOR THE DIVISION OF ADULT CORRECTION TO PROVIDE COPIES OF ALL RECORDS TO THE OFFICE OF THE CHIEF MEDICAL EXAMINER IN THE EVENT OF THE DEATH OF AN INMATE IN THE CUSTODY OF THE DIVISION.
Enacts new GS 148-10.5 requiring the Division of Adult Correction (Division), whenever an inmate dies while in the Division's custody, to provide copies of all records associated with the deceased to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (Examiner). Also requires any reports from investigations into the death conducted by the State Bureau of Investigation to be provided to the Examiner. States that no privacy considerations prevent the Examiner from obtaining copies of records directly from the Division.
