From: Todd Feathers


To Whom It May Concern:

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

1) Copies of all department documents--such as equipment request forms, inventory logs, etc.--detailing the number of chemical gas canisters (tear gas, pepper spray, etc.), rubber bullets, bean bag guns, long range acoustic devices (often known as sound cannons), riot gear (helmets, shields, etc.), flash bang grenades, stun grenades, and other non-lethal projectiles distributed to department personnel between the dates of May 20, 2020 and June 10, 2020.

2) Copies of all department documents detailing the number of chemical gas canisters (tear gas, pepper spray, etc.), rubber bullets, bean bag projectiles, flash bang grenades, stun grenades, and all other lethal and non-lethal projectiles expended between the dates of May 20, 2020 and June 10, 2020.

I ask that all fees be waived as I am a journalist (evidence of my work can be found at toddfeathers.com) and I intend to use the requested records to publish articles in the public interest.

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.

Sincerely,

Todd Feathers

Hi there

A message was sent to you regarding record request #20-3472:

Dear Requester:

 

 

The Department continues to process CPRA requests as they come in during the COVID-19 public health crisis, and will endeavor to do so in a timely manner.  While the Department will be making every effort to comply with its statutory obligations, due to the COVID-19 crisis and the City and Department's efforts to tackle its effects, the actual production of records responsive to your request (if any) may be delayed if Department resources are needed to perform critical functions or are constrained due to the pandemic.  The Department greatly appreciates your patience during this difficult time, as the entire community and nation deals with this unusual and serious situation.  During this crisis, the Department would also ask that requesters consider postponing the submission of any requests that can wait until after the immediate crisis has abated.

 

 

If you have any questions, please respond to this e-mail.

 

 

Respectfully,

 

LAPD Discovery Section, CPRA Unit

Dear Requester:

 

I have reviewed your California Public Records Act request. 

 

Please be advised that, pursuant to California Government Code Section 6253(c), I have found that “unusual circumstances” exist with respect to the request due to the need to search for, collect, and review the requested records from other Department entities which are separate from the office processing the request.  Therefore, my staff will require the statutory fourteen days extension of time in which to respond.  A determination concerning your request will be made as soon as possible.

 

If you have any questions regarding this correspondence, simply respond to this email. 

 

Respectfully,

LAPD Discovery Section CPRA Unit
