Judge or­ders re­lease of po­lice doc­u­ments

The Washington Times Daily - - Metro -

A D.C. judge has or­dered the re­lease of doc­u­ments re­lated to po­lice poli­cies and pro­ce­dures that the depart­ment sought to have con­cealed.

Su­pe­rior Court Judge Ju­dith Macaluso or­dered that the doc­u­ments be made public in a blis­ter­ing rul­ing last week in which she ac­cused po­lice of mak­ing “trans­par­ently false” state­ments in try­ing to pre­vent the re­lease of the doc­u­ments.

The doc­u­ments were sought as part of a 2009 law­suit from the Part­ner­ship for Civil Jus­tice Fund, a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Among the doc­u­ments the judge or­dered at least par­tially re­leased is the depart­ment’s planned re­sponse to an emer­gency at the Calvert Cliffs Nu­clear Power Plant in Mary­land.

A po­lice depart­ment spokes­woman said in a pre­pared state­ment Thurs­day that the depart­ment would com­ply with the or­der.
