Tulsa World: OHP pursuit policy could become public

A district judge will review the Oklahoma Highway Patrol’s pursuit policy before deciding whether it potentially can be used in the defense of a man accused of felony murder in a state trooper’s death during a vehicular chase. …

A state open records law exemption applicable only to DPS allows the Highway Patrol to keep secret records of a “tactical nature.” DPS contends that the pursuit policy is a tactical document that should be kept from public scrutiny.
