Dear Ms. Brytt-Stuart:
I am in receipt of your January 6, 2015 letter whereby you are asking for the complete volunteer application file August 2013-present: professional/personal reference documents, volunteer form, LiveScan fingerprinting results and investigator and police department personnel notes pertaining thereto.
The records that you sought are not public record. Release of personnel files would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy per California Government Code §§ 6254(c):

(c) Personnel, medical, or similar files, the disclosure of which would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
To the extent that there is a denial of some or all of the request for records, pursuant to Government Code §§ 6253(d) and 6255(b), Jane Mobaldi, Assistant City Attorney is responsible for the denial.
If you have any questions or need further assistance, please contact me.
