Will you support Voice of OC so we can continue to defend your right to know?
When the Deputy Sherrifs Union filed a lawsuit to block access to police misconduct records, Voice of OC jumped on the case.
Overnight, Voice assembled a team of first amendment lawyers, the Los Angeles Times and Southern California Public Radio to stop the union from sealing past records.
If Voice had not acted quickly, Orange County could be the only place in the state where the public could not access the records concerning police use of force, sexual assault on members of the public or incidents of lying while on duty.
Setting up a generous one time or recurring donation today will ensure that Voice of OC can continue defending your right to know.
