Hi there

Documents have been released for record request #19-1131 along with the following message:

Dear Ms. Haskins, The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department (“Department”) has concluded its review of your PublicRecords Act request seeking records related to artificial intelligence, machine learning, or facial recognition technology currently or historically in use. Some of the records you have requested contain confidential information and/or communications exempt from Public Records Act disclosure. Your request includes within its scope records covered by the deliberative process privilege. This privilege is based on the policy of protecting decision-making process, and the recognition that public officials need to have access to a range of opinions and points of views and to discuss matters in confidence before making decisions or taking action. (Times Mirror Co. v. Superior Court (1991) 53 Cal.3d 1325, 1344-1346; Cal. First Amendment Coalition v. Superior Court (1998) 67 Cal.App.4th 159, 171-172; Rogers v. Superior Court (1993) 19 Cal.App.4th 469.) Finally, investigative records are confidential and exempt from Public Records Act disclosure. Government Code section 6254(f) exempts from 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.3d645, 654; Younger v. Berkeley City Council (1st Dist. 1975) 45 Cal.App.34 825, 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.5 4th 337, 355-362.) Regarding training, employees using the system were sent to a 24 hour FBI training course from 6/19/18 through 6/21/18. Finally, we have withheld documents protected by the attorney-client privilege. Without waiving the foregoing objections, exemptions or privileges, the Department has made a good faith effort to locate responsive, non-exempt, non-confidential material. The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
