Many thanks for this response. Do you expect to be able to respond to the other components of the request?

From: Maraithe Thomas

Hello – this is a message to follow up on my previous request. You kindly sent me examples of complaints made by civilians , but I have not heard back on whether the other elements of the request will be fulfilled.

From: Rocky Gallant

I believe this inquiry has already been dealt with. Chief Hurtado and I
responded to the first email by sending a packet of what was requested. An
email was also sent, stating there have been no arrest related deaths
during the time frame requested. There have been no homicides by California
City PD officers during the time frame requested. There have been no
officer involved shootings during the time frame requested. At this point I
feel there isn't anything else I can send you. If you have further
questions you can contact me.

Thank you,

Rocky Gallant
California City Police Department
Records Supervisor
