S.F. No. 112 - Retention of Criminal Gang Investigative Data
Author: Senator Warren Limmer
Prepared By: Kenneth P. Backhus, Senate Counsel (651/296-4396)
Date: January 18, 2019


Section 1 extends the period that the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) must maintain data entered into the criminal gang investigative data system. Under current law, the BCA generally must destroy this data within three years of entry, unless the individual has been found to have committed a crime.  In that case, the record is maintained for three years from the adjudication.  Section 1 provides that for individuals incarcerated in a state prison where the Commissioner of Corrections documents criminal gang activities that took place in prison, the three-year period begins upon release.
