TCOG speaks out on Murfreesboro police records closure

Murfreesboro Police tried to cut off access to many police reports but later backpedalled. TCOG Executive Director Frank Gibson was quoted on the matter.

From the Daily News Journal:

Frank Gibson of the Tennessee Coalition for Open Government, though, said the potential for abuse by the Murfreesboro Police Department if the measures are re-implemented is high.”It appears the MPD is overreaching and trying to protect information that doesn’t at all deserve protection,” he said. “The public has a right to know every time a crime is reported.”
