Wyoming Criminal History Records May Only Be Disseminated to Law Enforcement Agencies for Investigatory Purposes
The AG found that Wyo. Stat. §§ 9-1-521 through 9-1¬528 required the CID to maintain a system which tracks those arrested for or convicted of crimes. He next found that Wyo. Stat. § 9-1-527(c) required that such information be disseminated only to law enforcement agencies and only for investigatory and intelligence purposes. This was so, statutes requiring disclosure or public records notwithstanding, because the same were not "public records" within the meaning of those statutes. See: Opinion No. 85¬008, 1986 Wyo. AG LEXIS 23; 1986 Op. Atty. Gen. Wyo. 41 (1986).
