Pursuant to the Georgia Open Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

1) The names of agencies and organizations with which the Agency shares ALPR data;
2) The names of agencies and organizations from which the Agency receives ALPR data;

4) The names of agencies and organizations from which the Agency receives “hot list” information;

5) The aggregate number of detections collected during 2018;
6) The aggregate number of “hits” during 2018;
7) The aggregate number of detections collected during 2019;

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 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Dave Maass

The Chief terminated the College Park relationship with Vigilant effective, I believe Feb 1st 2020, since we had not utilized the system for plate reads during the entire 2019 year. The PDF that I sent Sgt. Long (attached) was the last report available from Vigilant on the sharing data (although we were not actually providing new data during 2019). Upon notifying Vigilant that we were terminating our relationship we have no longer been able to connect to Vigilant and are unable provide any information on the data sharing or any prior historical reads.

As a practical matter we can say that we had few operational units during 2018 as well, but we did have some that worked, we just don't have access to the data any longer.

However, these appear to be the 2018 FIOA answers which should cover what they are asking for - at least as well as we can provide them.
