Law Enforcement Redaction Request Webinar
September 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
At the close of the 2021 legislative session the Iowa General Assembly approved a bill intended to provide various benefits and protections for Iowa law enforcement officials. Iowa County Recorders and Iowa Land Recorders support our first responders, and they have acted quickly to implement the policies in their jurisdictions.
Included in the legislation was a new provision which requires county recorders to set up process for redacting, upon request, the names of law enforcement personnel which appear in electronic documents posted for public access through an internet site. This applies to the Iowa Land Records website (see for Section 331.604), and any web site managed or overseen by an individual county. The Iowa County Recorders Association (ICRA) and the Iowa Land Records team have developed a standard process and Redaction Request Form that can be used by eligible current or former law enforcement officials to request the redaction of specific land records which are posted on the web. Eligible current or former law enforcement officials include certain civilian employees of law enforcement agencies, state or federal judicial officers, or state or federal prosecutors.
Join Iowa Land Records and the Iowa County Recorders Association on Friday, September 24th at 10 AM to learn more about the steps to complete a redaction request with Iowa County Recorders. Receive information about what protections the law does and does not provide. This informational webinar will provide insights regarding the new law and step by step guidance for completing and submitting the redaction request form.
