Good afternoon Mr. Waltman,

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 today, November 10h, 2016. We note that the Requests are limited only to records in our custody and control.

After doing research the Alameda County Sheriff Office does not have any documents concerning IMSI catchers and we do not have any contracts with the Harris
