Statement by John F. Burness on Release of Duke Police Operations Report

Police report was written following women's visit to Emergency Department

Since release of the report yesterday (8 May) by William Bowen and Julius Chambers, we have received numerous requests for the Duke Police operations report of 14 March concerning the incident at 610 N. Buchanan Blvd. Duke Police operation reports are confidential internal documents. Given that a number of statements in the operations report of 14 March have already been made public in the Bowen-Chambers report, we have decided to post it on the Duke website. This action is not and should not be considered a precedent for the release in the future of any Duke Police operations reports.
