2. The total number of use of force complaints reported by civilians in 2018
3. The total number of use of force complaints reported by civilians that were sustained in 2018

All arrests data reported to the California Department of Justice via the Monthly Arrests and Citation Register program covering arrests made in 2017 and 2018, including (but not limited to) the age, race/ethnicity, gender, offense category (felony, misdemeanor, status offense), charge and disposition of arrestees.

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.

From: Richmond Police Department

The City is preparing a response for 2 and 3 but we do not currently track use of force broken down by type of force used. We anticipate having a response to 2 and 3 by late next week. I am still trying to determine whether the Department tracks arrest data in response to 4. I will provide an update by Thursday, August 15 since I am out of the office starting tomorrow until Wednesday, August 14.

Thank you for your patience,
Shannon
