Hi there

Record request #19-6433 has been closed. The closure reason supplied was:

Dear Requester:

We reviewed your request dated November 5, 2019 for any “...documents mentioning or relating to the LAPD recruitment ad that appeared on Breitbart.com”. We thank you for your patience.

Your request was made under the California Public Records Act (the Act). The Department is cognizant of its responsibilities under the Act. It recognizes the statutory scheme was enacted to maximize citizen access to the workings of government. The Act does not mandate disclosure of all documents within the government’s possession. Rather, by specific exemption and reference to other statutes, the Act recognizes that there are boundaries where the public’s right to access must be balanced against such weighty considerations as the right of privacy, a right of constitutional dimension under California Constitution, Article 1, Section 1. The law also exempts from disclosure records that are privileged or confidential or otherwise exempt under either express provisions of the Act or pursuant to applicable federal or state law, per California Government Code Sections 6254(b); 6254(c); 6254(f); 6254(k); and 6255.

The Department has determined that responsive records have been released previously under another requests. You may view these records by visiting the NextRequest portal and search for the following Request numbers – 19-5580 and 19-5746.

 

Your request to the Department is now considered closed. If you have any questions, please respond to this email.

Respectfully,LAPD Discovery Section, CPRA Unit
