From: Michael Topper

To Whom It May Concern:

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

1) A list, database, or comparable record of every alert that has been generated by the department's Shotspotter technology since time of implementation through December 31st, 2020 or the date at which Shotspotter was deactivated-whichever date comes first. For instance, if Shotspotter was implemented in the city on January 1, 2008, I would like all Shotspotter data from this date to December 31st, 2020. The list/database should include, where possible, the date, time, location (address or latitude+longitude coordinates), single or multiple shot distinction, whether the shots were confirmed, police district located, and associated case number for each alert.
2) Any document that provides information on the procedure for how the police department should respond to Shotspotter alerts. In particular, I am looking for a document that describes how the police will react to a Shotspotter alert. For instance, if an alert is created, are police dispatched?
3) Shotspotter rollout dates. If the police department rolled out the Shotspotter data by police district, please include the implementation dates attached to each police district.

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,

Michael Topper

Good Afternoon,

The Police department is compiling and reviewing the records and anticipates having the records ready (if there are responsive records), or an update of the progress of compiling and reviewing the records, if it will take longer by 6/2/22.

Additionally, your request may include documents that are exempt from disclosure pursuant to the exemptions enumerated in California Government Code, including but not limited to Sections 6254(a), 6254(k), and 6255. To the extent your request includes documents that are exempt from disclosure, it is denied. After examining the documents we will notify you in writing whether we have withheld any documents due to applicable exemptions and will enumerate those exemptions.
