Polk County sheriff agrees to release 2018 shooting video


Associated Press: The Iowa Freedom of Information Council won a significant victory when the Polk County Sheriff’s Office agreed to release details of the shooting of a Wisconsin man by a deputy in July 2018. Under the court settlement signed by a judge on Thursday and released Monday, the sheriff’s office promised to release basic information, including reports and body and dash camera recordings, related to crimes and incidents when an open records request is filed for the next year. The victim’s family has filed a federal wrongful death and excessive force lawsuit that alleges a sheriff’s office cover-up by refusing to release footage and records related to the shooting near Altoona.
