Approximately two years ago your agency provided the equivalent information in response to a records request. You can view your agency’s previous release here: https://www.eff.org/pages/explore-alpr
For items 1-4: This information is easily available within the Agency’s Vigilant Solutions LEARN system. The simplest way to extract this data is to generate an “Agency Data Sharing Report” PDF file from within LEARN. To do this, a user may simply go to the “Sharing” section of LEARN and select “Output Report.” A CSV/XLS file containing these records would also satisfy this request. The instructions for extracting this data is described on pages 62-63 of the LEARN Agency Manager Guide, which may be found at this link: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3860685-LEARN-5-1-Agency-Manager-Guide.html
For items 5-8: This information is easily available within the Agency’s Vigilant Solutions LEARN system. The simplest way to extract this data is to generate a “Dashboard Hit Ratio Report” PDF file from within LEARN. We would prefer the data for each year to be provided separately. The instructions for extracting this data is described on pages 78-79 of the LEARN Agency Manager Guide, which may be found at this link: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3860685-LEARN-5-1-Agency-Manager-Guide.html
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

I'm working with different APD Units to pull the data you are requesting. I have the Part B responsive information uploaded under the attachments tab. You can download the documents up to two times before you "max out" and we have to reset the counter. Just let me know if that happens. Word of warning: there is a quirk in the system where double clicking the attachment counts as two downloads so be mindful of that.
I'll upload the remaining data as soon as it is available.
