Police Open Records Request

  1. The Texas Public Information Act prohibits a government body from inquiring into a reguestor's reasons or motives for requesting information. However, the act permits a governmental body to establish proper identification. A governmental body may ask a requestor to clarify a request for information if the request is unclear. If a large amount of information is requested, the governmental body is permitted to discuss with the requestor how the scope of a request might be narrowed. The Act applies only to information already in existence and does not require a governmental body to prepare new information in response to a request. Nor does the Act require a governmental body to inform a requestor if the requested information comes into existence after the request has been made. A goveernmental body is not required to comply with a continuing request to supply information on a periodic basis as such information is prepared in the future, nor is the body required to prepare answers to questions or to do legal research.
