Senate Enrolled Act 191 – Digital Photos of Persons Arrested

Sen. Tom Wyss, R-Fort Wayne, introduced this bill that will require police departments to upload digital photographs of arrested individuals to the state’s criminal history database. Prior to this law, there was no requirement for local law enforcement agencies to forward those photos to state police. Those eligible under law to receive limited criminal histories from state or local agencies will now receive those photos. A limited criminal history includes a report that details arrests only with convictions, or recent arrests with no disposition.
