From: Brandon Anderson


To Whom It May Concern:

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

I am the founder of Raheem, an independent service for reporting police conduct in the United States. We believe that making the behavior of the police visible in the form of meaningful data—especially as it impacts communities of color—will lead to systemic changes and ultimately a world where we all feel safe to live and love freely.

Raheem is a non-profit funded by My Brother’s Keeper Alliance of the Obama Foundation, Kresge Foundation, and Luminate, a philanthropic organization founded by Pierre Omidyar, the founder of eBay.

This letter serves as a records request. If needed, we can modify our request based on your agency’s technological and/or personnel limitations.

A detailed list of the requested data elements is provided below. Please note that we are requesting individual-level data in digital form (excel, svs, vector PDF, etc.) from 2009-2018. Please provide codebooks/data dictionaries for all data requested. Please consider this our best case scenario list, as we realize not all points may be fulfilled through this request. We are happy to discuss this further.
