Brady Disclosure Requirements

It is the purpose of this policy to provide officers with the information necessary to properly fulfill the reporting and testimonial requirements mandated under U.S. Supreme Court decisions including Brady v. Maryland 373 U.S. 83 (1963) and Giglio v. U.S. 405 U.S. 150 (1972).

The Brady decision and subsequent rulings have made it a duty of all law enforcement agencies to (1) identify and provide to the prosecution any exculpatory material that would have a reasonable probability of altering the results in a trial, or any material that could reasonably mitigate the sentencing of a defendant and (2) any material relevant to the credibility of government witnesses, including, but not limited to, police officers. It is the policy of this police department to follow Brady disclosure requirements consistent with the law.
