Good afternoon,
Our scribe log we believe to be responsive to this request has been reviewed. We have located information that requires us to provide third party notice to the Seattle Police Department. Said notice is being provided to them on this date. They have until the end of business on January 28, 2021, to obtain injunctive release against the disclosure of certain information. Should we receive no response from their offices, this record will be released to you on that same date.
Please let me know if you have any questions in the interim.
Thank you,

Bellevue Police Department RPC 4.4 Inadvertent Disclosure Notification: CR 26 (b) (6) Claw Back Provision *** Please read this notice carefully ***
Dear legal practitioner: Please take notice that we take reasonable precautions to prevent the disclosure of privileged or confidential materials, including those protected by the attorney-client privilege and/or work product doctrine, when responding to request for records.  These precautions include, but are not limited to, carefully locating and assembling responsive records, performing an intra-departmental review of the records for purposes of determining whether they contain any privileged or confidential materials, forwarding the records to the County Prosecuting Attorney's Office for independent legal review, meeting and conferring with the Prosecuting Attorney's Office to compare and reconcile any conflicting results of our separate independent reviews and, if necessary, creating a withholding log.  Despite our having taken these precautions, occasionally a mistake is made and privileged or confidential documents are inadvertently produced.  To that end, we wanted to notify you that there is a possibility that the records being produced may contain privileged or confidential materials.  The inadvertent or unintentional production of privileged or confidential documents, without a privileged or confidentiality designation should not be considered a waiver in whole or in part of any claim of privileged or confidential treatment, and any document that initially is produced without bearing a privileged or confidentiality designation may later be so designated.  In the event that you believe you have received privileged or confidential materials, we would ask that you promptly notify us of this fact and take action as necessary to comply with the obligations set forth in Rule of Professional Conduct 4.4 and/or Civil Rule 26 (b)(6).
