Dear Requester:

 

We have reviewed your California Public Records Act request. 

 

Please be advised that, pursuant to California Government Code Section 6253(c), we 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, our 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, please respond to this email. 

 

Respectfully,

LAPD Public Records &amp; Subpoena Response Section, CPRA Unit

Dear Requester:

 

We received your correspondence from November 16, 2022.

 

We have identified a responsive record and are continuing to review it for applicable exemptions. We will provide you with the responsive record upon completion of our review. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

A message was sent to you regarding record request #22-10337:

Dear Requester:

Thank you for your patience.

 

We are continuing to review the responsive record, which will be redacted to protect from disclosure confidential information, pursuant to Government Code Sections 6254(f)(3), 6254(k), and 6255, the Penal Code, and the Welfare and Institutions Code Section 827.9.

 

Furthermore, regarding your request for the injuries incurred, please be advised that the Department does not track or maintain this data in a database. In order to collect the data, the Department would have to take affirmative steps to manually search each report to determine if any records contain the information you have requested. Thus, the Department asserts Government Code Section 6255 of the California Public Records Act, which exempts records where “the public interest served by not disclosing the record clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure." The “public interest” provision of Section 6255 includes an exemption where production of the requested information would be unduly burdensome to the public agency involved. Therefore, we are denying this item of your request.

 

The Department estimates that it will provide you with the responsive, redacted record by or before January 2, 2023.

 

If you have any questions, please respond to this email.

Respectfully,

 

LAPD Public Records &amp; Subpoena Response Section, CPRA Unit
