To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the California's Sunshine Amendment (Cal. Const. Art. I, § 3(b)), I hereby request the following records:
Copies of all receipts written since 2010 by employees of the Sheriff's Office for cash or property that has been seized from an individual. These receipts are sometimes called cash seizure receipts, civil forfeiture receipts, or property for safekeeping or abandonment receipts. One copy of the receipt is given to the individual whose cash or property has been seized and another copy is kept by the Sheriff's Office.
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.
Please see the attached.
