DPS Withholds Accident Victims' Names In Response To Crime Victims' Amendment

Nov 28, 2016

The South Dakota Department of Public Safety has stopped releasing the names of people killed or injured in traffic accidents, at least for now. The department instigated this rule in response to the new amendment to the state constitution that spells out the rights of crime victims. Included are rights to privacy and to prevent the release of certain information. SDPB's Victoria Wicks has this report.
