Have you ever wondered how Louisiana’s public records laws work? On Wednesday, July 25, journalists from The Lens will explain how you can use public records to hold your government agencies accountable and how to get those records.

This time, we will focus on criminal justice records. This includes public records relating to court records.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

How to use Louisiana’s public records law to view and obtain documents

How to search 911 call logs and view NOPD incident reports
