Mr. James R. Schnurr
Assistant City Attorney
Criminal Law and Police Division
City of Dallas
2014 Main Street
Dallas, Texas 75201


Dear Mr. Schnurr:

You ask whether certain information is subject to required public disclosure under the Texas Open Records Act, chapter 552 of the Government Code. Your request was assigned ID# 121125.

The City of Dallas received an open records request that encompassed certain 911 call reports. We believe that a prior ruling, Open Records Letter No. 98-2551 (1998) answers your questions concerning originating telephone numbers and addresses on 911 call reports. You may rely upon Open Records Letter No. 98-2551 as a previous determination on this issue under section 552.301 of the Government Code and thus need not ask this office again for a decision concerning these types of records.(1)

If you have any questions about this ruling, please contact our office.

Yours very truly,

June B. Harden
Assistant Attorney General
Open Records Division

1. Although you have submitted additional records to this office in connection with this request, you do not argue that these records are excepted from required public disclosure. These records therefore are presumed to be public and must be released. See Gov't Code 552.301, .302.
