Lone Star College provides Incident Reports, Accident Reports, and Public Records under the Texas Public Information Act (Texas Government Code, Chapter 552). Some or all materials requested may be subject to redaction or denial of records in whole.
All requests are subject to review by the General Counsel and Chief of Police. Reports may not be readily available upon request. Lone Star College has 10 business days by law from the date of request to respond. In most cases the request is filled within a few days. If a request is extensive, the requester will be provided with an estimated timeline that it will take to fill such a request, as well as associated fees.
Under the Texas Public Records Law there is no specific form that must be used to make a request; please provide a reasonable description of what is being requested, specifying exactly what materials are wished to be obtained. So that this Department may make arrangements for completed requests to be disseminated, as well as payment of any associated fees, the requester MUST provide contact information; this especially applies to requests online, as it is a limited email based request system and not monitored for ongoing correspondences regarding requests. Requests may be submitted by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
