Hi there

Record request #21-4022 has been closed and published. The closure reason supplied was:

Dear Requester:
 

We reviewed your request for copies of the Los Angeles Police Department’s police reports and 9-1-1 audio recordings related to an incident that occurred at 349 North La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048 on May 18, 2021.

 

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.

 

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, we are denying your request. The requested records may be available in response to a subpoena or court order.

 

You may personally serve your subpoena to the Custodian of Records at the following location during normal business hours (Monday – Friday, 8 am to 4pm):

 

LAPD Discovery

200 N. Spring St., Ste. 1900

Los Angeles, CA  90012

 

Should any records be 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 can be made available to you upon request.

 

If you are the victim or the victim’s legal representative, you may contact the Los Angeles Police Department’s Records and Identification Division at (213) 486-8110 for further information on obtaining reports for victims of crimes.

 

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

 

Respectfully,

 

LAPD Discovery Section, CPRA Unit
