Dear Kory Saulnier:
NOTICE: Public records requests and transparency remain of utmost importance, and we are continuing to respond to requests under California Government Code guidelines. However, you may experience delays in response times as we are focusing on handling high priority issues related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Pursuant to Government Code section 6253(c) there may be delays due to unusual circumstances.
Thank you for submitting a request for public records to the City of Long Beach. Pursuant to California Government Code § 6253, staff will review your request and respond within 10 days to notify you if there are responsive records, or if an extension is necessary to determine if responsive records exist.
If your request was received after business hours or on a weekend or holiday, the next business day will be considered the date of receipt. The 10-day response period starts with the first calendar day after the date of receipt (Ca. Civ. Code, § 10.).
You may be contacted by a City staff member if there are questions regarding your request.
Thank you again for contacting the City of Long Beach. You may track the status of your request here My Request Center.

RE: Public Records Request Reference Number: C008188-080120
Thank you for submitting your request for public records. After reviewing your request, we have determined that additional or more detailed information is needed to appropriately search for records. Specifically, are you referring to the City surveillance cameras where traffic violations were captured?
While the Public Records Act (PRA) provides members of the public with access to public records, it is not unlimited in its scope. California courts have acknowledged that members of the public may request documents from municipalities pursuant to the PRA even if they are unable to precisely identify the documents sought, but the request must still reasonably describe the information contained in the records sought such that the municipality can locate the records with “reasonable effort”. [Cal. First Amend. Coalition v. Superior Court (1998) 67 Cal.App.4th 159.]
The request must be focused and specific [Rogers v. Superior Court (1993) 19 Cal.App.4th 469.] and clear enough so that the agency can decipher what record or records are being sought. Moreover, the City is not required by law to create a record or list from an existing record.
The City will wait for your response before proceeding with this request. If we do not hear back from you within 10 calendar days, the PRA request will be closed.
Thank you for contacting the City of Long Beach. If you have any questions, please contact the Records Coordinator Office at (562) 570-6711.
