Bill summary

Applicable to the City of Greensboro only, amends GS 160A-168 as previously amended by SL 2001-20, authorizing the city manager or the city chief of police, or their designees, to release the disposition of disciplinary charges and the surrounding facts relied upon in that determination against a police officer to any board or committee designated by the city council to provide citizen review of the police disciplinary process (previously, specified release to the Human Relations Commission Complaint Subcommittee). Further authorizes the city manager or the city chief of police, or their designees, and the designated board or committee to release the disposition of the disciplinary charges and the surrounding facts relied upon in that determination to the person alleged to have been aggrieved by the officer's actions or that person's survivor (previously, only the city manager and the city chief of police, or their designees, can make the release, and the release was limited to the disposition of the disciplinary charges only). Makes conforming changes to require the members of the designated board or committee rather than the members of the Human Relations Commission Complaint Subcommittee to maintain confidentiality and execute confidentiality agreements as previously described.
