I don't see where they get they don't have to tell you anything or they are a private corporation. They are being paid by taxpayers, performing police duties, so I think their records should be open.After the ACLU sent open records requests as part of its investigative report on police militarization, SWAT teams in Massachusetts claimed they were exempt because they were private corporations.
Mass. SWAT teams claim they’re private companies and don’t have to tell you anything
Kind of makes me wonder what they are trying to hide. If I were a resident of Massachusetts I wouldn't like this at all. If it turns out they don't have to disclose their records fire them all and start over with a new team.
