Statement: DPS Asked to Investigate Case Information Access by BYU PD
At the request of the BYU Police Chief Larry Stott and other law enforcement administrators in Utah County, the Utah Department of Public Safety’s State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) will review information access and dissemination issues including any possible violations related to the sexual assault reporting situation at BYU made public this spring. SBI is currently working with BYU Police Department, and other law enforcement agencies involved, to determine the scope and focus of the investigation.
If appropriate, at the conclusion of the investigation the findings will be reported to the Utah County Attorney’s Office and the requesting agencies. Because this is an active investigation, we cannot release further information.
