Formella reminds the public that, on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, the Department of Justice will release the names of officers who were added to the Exculpatory Evidence Schedule (EES) prior to April 30, 2018, unless the officer has timely notified the Department of Justice that he or she has a pending legal action regarding his or her placement on the EES.

The Department of Justice's release of the officer's name, as well as any corresponding information on the EES, is required by RSA 105:13-d, which was enacted by the New Hampshire Legislature last year.
