Upon written request of a person who has been properly identified as an officer of
the law or a properly identified United States immigration official the department
or authority shall disclose to such officer the current address and location of a
recipient of public welfare if the officer furnishes the department or authority with
such person's name and social security account number and satisfactorily demonstrates
that such recipient is a fugitive, that the location or apprehension of such fugitive
is within the officer's official duties, and that the request is made in the proper
exercise of those duties.
When the department or authority becomes aware that a public assistance recipient
is the subject of an outstanding warrant, the department or authority may contact
the appropriate law enforcement agency and, if the warrant is valid, provide the law
enforcement agency with the location of the recipient.
