Prosecutors and District Attorneys across the United States are obligated under Brady to disclose any information on all individuals upon whose testimony they will rely; and, relevance of the information is to be interpreted in the best possible favor to a defendant. Brady disclosures often include information gathered from Peace Officer Standards & Training [POST] Departments, other Prosecutor offices, State's Attorney General and Department of Justice, Law Enforcement Organizations, and any/all other sources of information.
