Hi there

Record request #18-3250 has been closed. The closure reason supplied was:

Dear Daysia Tolentino:

 

I have reviewed your request for "reports filed for non-consensual pornography or "revenge porn" investigations," and "arrest logs relating to charges of non-consensual pornography or "revenge porn" from October 1, 2013 to December 5, 2018. 

 

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 in order 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.

 

In accordance with the California Government Code, Section 6254(f), records of investigations conducted by, or investigatory files compiled by, any local police agency for law enforcement purposes are exempt from disclosure. To the extent that records were located, they are either investigatory records themselves or properly part of an investigative file. Therefore, I am denying your request. The records may be provided pursuant to a subpoena or court order related to pending litigation.

 

In addition, as part of our due diligence, a search was conducted, and no records responsive to your request were located. There are currently no identifiers specific to non-consensual pornography or "revenge pornography" which allow for this data to be retrieved from our database. Had records been located, to the extent the information is recorded, the time, date, and location of occurrence, the time and date of the report, the name and age of the victim, and a brief statement of the circumstances may have been made available to you upon request.

 

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

 

Respectfully,

LAPD CPRA Unit

From: Los Angeles Police Department

City of Los Angeles
