Published: April 15, 2008

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Yale University announced April 11 it will not appeal a decision by the FOI Commission stating the school’s police department is a public agency that is subject to the state’s open records laws.

Yale released the following statement:

“The University will abide by the FOI Commission’s decision requiring disclosure of certain documents related to Yale Police Department officers; we are doing so because Yale recognizes the unique and public law enforcement role that its officers play in the City of New Haven. Yale takes extremely seriously its relationship to the public in performing its police work in the City. It is important to note that records relating to the police function of the department – specifically including police reports and arrest records – have always been available to the public through the New Haven Police Department. The members of the Yale Police Department bring the highest professionalism, integrity and dedication to the effective work they perform every day on behalf of the Yale community and our neighbors in New Haven. That exemplary level of service will continue in every aspect of the department’s work.”
