Culver City police data collection

Samuel Sinyangwe filed this request with the Culver City Police Department of Culver City, CA.


From: Samuel Sinyangwe

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

1. the total number of use of force incidents, separated by type of force, from 2020 and 2021, separated by year. (for example, information that specifies the number of taser incidents in 2021, baton incidents in 2021, etc.)

2. the total number of civilian complaints alleging law enforcement use of excessive force that were reported and the total number sustained in 2020 and 2021, separated by year.

3. the total number of officer involved shootings in 2020 and 2021, both fatal and non-fatal, separated by year.

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 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.

My apologies. This got lost in the emails due to me being on vacation. I will be processing this today and hopefully have a response by tomorrow.
