Open Records – Right To Know
Pennsylvania’s New Right-to-Know Law, Act 3 of 2008, was signed into law by Gov. Edward G. Rendell on February 14, 2008 and became effective January 1, 2009. The Doylestown Township Police Department has established an open records officer for any requests made under the new law. The Doylestown Township Police has adopted a standard “Right-To-Know Request Form” which is available for download under the Forms and Fees menu.
