Communications

From: Louise Matsakis

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Any emails, written communications, documents, or other communications between officials from Los Angeles Police Department (henceforth, LAPD) and representatives of the corporation "Amazon."

We seek LAPD records of any kind, including electronic records, audiotapes, videotapes, and photographs, as well as letters, emails, facsimiles, telephone messages, voice mail messages and transcripts, notes, and minutes of any meetings. The search should be limited to responsive records created between January 1, 2018 and the day the request is fulfilled.

Our request includes any attachments to these records. No category of material should be omitted from search, collection, and production. You may not exclude searches of files or emails in the personal custody of your officials, such as personal email accounts.

In the event some portions of the requested records are properly exempt from disclosure, please disclose any reasonably segregable non-exempt portions of the requested records. If it is your position that a document contains non-exempt segments, but that those non-exempt segments are so dispersed throughout the document as to make segregation impossible, please state what portion of the document is non-exempt, and how the material is dispersed throughout the document. If a request is denied in whole, please state specifically that it is not reasonable to segregate portions of the record for release.

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,

Tom Simonite

From: Los Angeles Police Department

Hi there

A message was sent to you regarding record request #19-1362:

Dear Requester:

We have reviewed your request for any emails, written communications, documents, or other communications between officials from Los Angeles Police Department (henceforth, LAPD) and representatives of the corporation "Amazon", LAPD records of any kind, including electronic records, audiotapes, videotapes, and photographs, as well as letters, emails, facsimiles, telephone messages, voice mail messages and transcripts, notes, and minutes of any meetings. The search should be limited to responsive records created between January 1, 2018 and the day the request is fulfilled. Request includes any attachments to these records. No category of material should be omitted from search, collection, and production. May not exclude searches of files or emails in the personal custody of your officials, such as personal email accounts.

A search of email communications based only on keyword “Amazon" and “between officials from Los Angeles Police Department” would require a separate search of each individual email account of approximately 13,184 Department employee email accounts. We are unable to conduct a search based on the search criteria provided. Please narrow the scope of your request and provide specific names of the personnel whose emails you are seeking. Please respond before the due date of March 22, 2019, so we can proceed with your request. Furthermore, we are unable to request for copies of personal emails containing the word “Amazon". Amazon is an e-commerce company and the search you are requesting will results in a large volume of non-responsive and private emails.

Please note that effective March 1, 2019, requesters will be charged for staff time expended to redact exempt information contained in email messages and attachments (“emails”). This cost recovery policy is implemented in accordance with California Government Code §6253.9(b)(2) and National Lawyers Guild v. City of Hayward, 27 Cal. App. 5th 937 (2018).

As a reminder, LAPD will not produce any copies of emails until payment has been received.  If you do not wish to pay for any necessary redactions of such electronic records, you may amend your CPRA request to remove the email request component (if you requested multiple items), narrow the scope of your email request (time frame, search terms, or senders/recipients) or withdraw your request.  Please notify us of your decision as early as possible.  Thank you for your understanding.

Respectfully,

LAPD Discovery Section, CPRA Unit

From: Los Angeles Police Department

City of Los Angeles
