Penal Code 13650

On January 1st of 2020, California Senate Bill 978 modified Penal Code section 13650.  P.C. 13650 now requires law enforcement agencies to post certain records on their websites.  The records listed in the statute are: all current standards, policies, practices, operating procedures, and education and training materials that would otherwise be available to the public if a request was made pursuant to the California Public Records Act.  The San Jose Police Department has compiled these documents in our P.C. 13650 library.  Investigative, tactical, and security information has been redacted in accordance with existing law.

The statute requires that we post current records.  Whenever a record is modified, updated,  or replaced, the old record will be removed and replaced by the most current version.  Instructional materials will be removed when they are no longer taught by the department.
