Re: Public Records Act request #22-473

 

Dear Ms. Gordon:

 

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department (“Department”) has concluded its review of the Public Records Act request, wherein you seek records related to the Department’s use of cell-site simulator technology.

 

The Department has located the attached documents which may be responsive to your request. Redactions have been made pursuant to Government Code section 6254(c), (k), and 6255(a). Duplication costs have been waived. Any other records related to your request constitute confidential investigative records and as such, exempt from disclosure. Government Code section 6254(f) exempts from Public Records Act disclosure “any investigatory…files compiled by any…local agency for…law enforcement…purposes.” These records are exempt from disclosure, whether or not the prospect of enforcement proceedings is concrete and definite (Haynie v. Superior Court (2001) 26 Cal. 4th 1061,1069; Black Panther Party v. Kehoe (1974) 42 Cal.App.3d 645,654; Younger v. Berkeley City Council (1st Dist. 1975) 45 Cal.App.3d 825, 833; American Civil Liberties Union Foundation v. Deukmejian (1982) 32 Cal.3d 440), and remain protected from disclosure, even after an investigation has concluded. (Williams v. Superior Court (1993) 5 Cal. 4th 337, 355-362.) In addition, the release of such records could violate the privacy rights of involved police officers, witnesses, victims and other persons named and/or depicted therein. These privacy rights are protected by the California Constitution, and are a fundamental interest recognized by the Public Records Act. (Cal. Const., Art I, Section I; Gov. Code §§ 6254, subds. (c) &amp; (k), and 6255.)

 

 

Sincerely,

San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department
