Proposed Revisions to Local Schedule PS

Local Government Records Retention Schedule UpdateAs part of our effort to maintain up-to-date local government records retention schedules, we are currently working to update Local Schedule PS: Records of Public Safety Agencies. We will be presenting a draft to our Commission at a meeting later this year to begin the Local Schedule approval process, but before we begin the official update process we would like to solicit feedback from the local governments we serve. A current draft of updates to Local Schedule PS is available on our website and we would appreciate any feedback you are able to provide about the proposed changes.

The proposed changes to Local Schedule PS are primarily based on changes in law or questions and suggested revisions we’ve received from local governments since the last schedule update in 2011. We also propose removing several series and reorganizing the schedule to reduce redundancy and make Local Schedule PS easier to use.

We will be accepting comments and feedback until 5:00 pm on Friday, May 6, 2016. Please send written comments to Sarah Jacobson, Manager, Records Management Assistance, Box 12927, Austin, TX 78711; by fax to 512-936-2306; or by email to sjacobson@tsl.texas.gov.
