56-221. Confidential character of public assistance records. The rule-making power of the state department shall include the power to establish and enforce reasonable rules and regulations governing the custody, use and preservation of the records, papers, files and communications of the state department. Wherever, under provisions of law, names and addresses of recipients of public assistance are furnished to or held by any state or county official, the names and addresses shall be subject to disclosure according to chapter 1, title 74, Idaho Code; but any exemption from disclosure shall not prevent the furnishing to a state or local law enforcement officer, upon his written request, with the current address of any AFDC recipient if the officer furnishes the state department with such recipient’s name and social security account number and proof that such recipient is a convicted fugitive felon or an indicted fugitive felon, or a person for whom a fugitive warrant has been issued, and that the location or apprehension of such felon or person is within the officer’s official duties, and that the request is made in the proper exercise of those duties.
