Dear Ms. Mraule,

For some reason the files did not show up as .pdf file, only as image files. Could you resent them as .pdf files?

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Robert Teel

From: Robert Teel

Dear Ms. Mraule,

I almost forgot, your letter indicates, "Pursuant to Cal. Gov. Code § 6254 (f), CDCR is withholding records regarding investigatory or security files that are compiled by state or local agencies for correctional or for law enforcement purposes." Could you provide a description please? If the record contains exempt information, the agency generally must segregate or redact the exempt information and disclose the remainder of the record so I would like to know if anything is non-exempt.

Govt. Code 6253.1. provides, (a) When a member of the public requests to inspect a public record or obtain a copy of a public record, the public agency, in order to assist the member of the public make a focused and effective request that reasonably describes an identifiable record or records, shall, to the extent reasonable under the circumstances provide suggestions for overcoming any practical basis for denying access to the records or information sought. Is there any way to redact the records and provide the rest?

Sincerely,

Robert Teel
