YCPD Chief Kahley Reneges on Promise to Deliver Data Policy to the Public
Eight months after Councilman Michael Helfrich called on Chief Wes Kahley and the York City Police Department to release a policy on the city’s use of automatic license plate scanners, the stonewalling continues.
Despite multiple reassurances from the York City Police Department that a policy outlining protective measures would be released publicly, the city has yet again denied my Right-To-Know request for records associated with the operation of the scanners.
I’m initiating an appeal with the Pennsylvania Office of Open Records. I’ve alerted city council members and requested they join me in leading the call for transparency in public policy.
