This is a follow up to our letter dated December 14, 2015, regarding your Public Records Act Request addressed to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department (“Department”).

As stated, we wanted to provide you with an updated status and inform you that since the time of our last correspondence, this Department has been diligently working to determine the availability of any records that may be responsive to your request. Please be advised that the search for responsive records is ongoing and we have not completed the search. Once the Department has gathered together and ascertained what records, if any, may be responsive to your request, we will determine what portion of them may be privileged and notify you as to what records may be provided, or provided in redacted format. In the alternative, if the Department is able to identify specific, non-privileged record responsive to your requests, we will advise you of the nature of such records, advise you of the cost of duplication, which must be paid in advance, and provide copies to you following such payment.
