Dear Ms. Lipton,

Pursuant to California Government Code Section 6253(c), we write in response to the inquiry that you made to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office under the California Public Records Act, which we received on, May 22, 2018. We note that the Requests are limited only to records in our custody and control.
Please note that we will not produce documents that are privileged or otherwise exempt from disclosure pursuant to California Government Code Section 6254(k). This includes documents protected by the attorney-client privilege, attorney work product, and official information privileges.

No preliminary drafts or memorandum not normally kept in the ordinary course of business will be produced pursuant to California Government Code Section 6254(a).

We will not produce documents that are subject to copyright protections, contain trade secrets, and/or proprietary and/or confidential information. See California Government Code Sections 6253.9, 6254(k), 6254.9; California Evidence Code section 1060.

We will not produce documents exempt from disclosure under the deliberative process privilege. See Times Mirror Co. v. Superior Court (1991) 53 Cal.3d 1325.

No documents will be produced where "the public interest served by not disclosing the record clearly outweighs the public interest by the disclosure of the record" under California Government Code Section 6255. Additionally, no documents will be produced if they contain personnel, medical, private, confidential, or similar files, the disclosure of which would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy under California Government Code Section 6254(c). And, to the extent any of the records you are requesting are the subject of ongoing litigation and/or pending investigations, and/or are law enforcement investigatory records, such records are exempt from production. See Government Code Sections 6254 (b), (f); Cal. Evidence Code § 1040.

In addition, no documents or records will be produced to the extent such a production would violate California Penal Code §§ 832.7, 832.8, 11076, 13072, 13300 et seq. or Evidence Code § 1043.

The Alameda County Sheriff's Office is in the process of gathering some responsive, non-exempt documents in regards to your Request. After review, we will have a cost estimate for you (if any), and upon receipt of payment from you (if any), we will produce these materials. If deemed necessary, we may have to produce on a rolling basis.

Best regards,

Cynthia Wilson
