The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will no longer share information on whether deputies' force and tactics have been found in or out of policy when shooting suspects, KPCC reports.
In an effort for greater transparency, data on shooting evaluations was available to the public on the LASD's public data sharing page for months. But that all changed in June after union objections, according to NBC4's media partner KPCC.
The change came at the request of the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriff's, which argued that sharing such information violates California's police officer privacy laws.
While the data did not include individual names, unions argued that the public could figure out if any individual deputy has been disciplined for shooting someone.
