A proposed law in the Oregon Legislature would limit the release of 911 call audio recordings to the media. Laura Wolf with Portland's Bureau of Emergency Communications says it is designed to protect victims from embarrassment. The calls often emotional and containing personal information. The ALCU and the Oregon Association of Broadcasters oppose the bill, arguing the change could limit public access to important information. There is an exception in the bill, allowing release without consent if it is in the public's best interest.
