All criminal offense records are generally considered privileged and do not become public record until adjudicated. In certain instances, records falling into the following categories, specified by La. R. S. 44.1 and 44.3, continue to be privileged because of the very nature of the information contained therein after adjudication and shall not be released except in response to a lawful court order:
Supplemental reports (aside from property information)
Reports revealing the identity of undercover officers or any reports that would tend to identify undercover officers
Reports identifying juvenile criminal or status offenders
Reports identifying in any way victims of sexual offenses
Reports detailing investigative techniques
Reports detailing security procedures
Reports containing training information
Reports detailing investigative technical equipment or instructions on the use thereof
Reports identifying confidential sources
In order to document the release of public information to members of the public, a records release ledger shall be maintained by the Criminal Records Division reflecting the identity (full name, address, date of birth, and driver’s license number) of all persons who are provided public records. This ledger shall also include a document identifying file number (item number), type of report (signal), and number of pages of the released document.
This documentation shall not include the release records or information to governmental entities or the respective representatives to whom documents are released to for purposes of official investigations, prosecutions, etc.
