07-027 The Honorable Dave Nutter
Member, House of Delegates

Discretionary authority for Department of State Police to release names of concealed carry handgun permittees, including other associated personal information, pursuant to Virginia Freedom of Information Act request. Identities and locations of crime victim and witness permittees should be protected in interest of public safety. Department has responsibility to refrain from releasing sensitive personal information when interests of public safety demand discretion. Use of concealed carry permit information is limited to law-enforcement personnel for investigative purposes.
