To Whom It May Concern:

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

- All available misconduct records or serious use-of-force investigations regarding Los Angeles County Sheriff's detective Rosalina Harris.

Please note that under Senate Bill 1421’s amendments to California Penal Code sections 832.7 and 832.8, certain types police misconduct records are now public records under California law. These records include:
- Records related to any incident where a law enforcement officer fired a gun at a person (regardless of whether someone was hit), or used force that resulted in serious injury or death.
- Records related to incidents where the agency found that an officer committed sexual assault against a member of the public—which includes attempts to coerce sex or proposition sex while on duty.
- Records related to incidents where the agency found that an officer engaged in dishonesty in the investigation, reporting, or prosecution of crime or police misconduct. This kind of dishonesty could include filing a false report, testifying untruthfully, or planting evidence.

I therefore request any such records concerning Harris during her employment at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

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,

CJ Ciaramella

From: Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department

Request Target: HARRIS, ROSALINA

Dear CJ Ciaramella ,

We are writing to provide you an update on the status of your pending SB-1421 related California Public Records Act request. As you may be aware, SB-1421, which amended the California Penal Code to allow for certain previously confidential peace officer personnel records to be released to the public, took effect on January 1, 2019. Since that time the Department has received thousands of SB-1421 related public records requests. Moreover, in early 2019, SB 1421 was challenged in court, which issued stays that prohibited the Department from releasing records until they were lifted.

This letter is to advise you that the Department is still processing your request, which includes determining if there are any responsive records, locating those records, and applying legally mandated redactions to the records. Although the Department has responded to approximately 25% of the pending requests, there still remains a backlog. To address the backlog, last year the Department quadrupled the number of personnel assigned to process SB-1421 related requests and has invested in deploying technology to streamline its processes. Because of these improvements, we have now assigned your request the above-captioned Request ID number to better track your request.

The Department is committed to being transparent with the communities it serves. Should you have any specific questions, please contact us at SB1421@lasd.org<mailto:SB1421@lasd.org> and reference Request ID: 5278.

We thank you for your continued patience.
