Sheriff's Department:

NOTE: THE EMAIL ADDRESS SENDING THIS REQUEST IS A PUBLICLY-VIEWABLE MAILBOX. Please be certain you have properly redacted all of your responses. Once you send them to us, there is no going back. All of your responses (including all responsive records) may be instantly and automatically available to the public online via the MuckRock.com FOIA service used to issue this request (though the requester is an anonymous user, not a representative of MuckRock). Nothing herein is legal, IT, or professional advice of any kind. The author disclaims all warranties, express or implied, including but not limited to all warranties of merchantability or fitness. In no event shall the author be liable for any special, direct, indirect, consequential, or any other damages whatsoever. The digital signature, if any, in this email is not an indication of a binding agreement or offer; it merely authenticates the sender. Please do not include any confidential information, as I intend that these communications with the City all be disclosable public records.

Below are new Immediate Disclosure Requests (SF Admin Code 67.25(a)) directed to your agency.
Your initial response is required by Feb 25, 2020. Rolling records responses are requested (SFAC 67.25(d)) if you are unable to immediately produce records.
Exact copies of every responsive record are requested (Gov Code 6253(b)) - do not: provide mere URLs, print and scan electronic records, convert native files to PDFs, or provide black and white versions of any color record. Provide only copies of records not requiring fees and in-person inspection of all other records (GC 6253).

Your non-exhaustive obligations:
- All withholding of any information must be justified in writing by specific statutory authority (SFAC 67.27).
- All withholdings by masking or deletion (aka redactions) must be keyed by footnote or other clear reference to the specific justification for that redaction, and only the minimal exempt portion of any record may be withheld (SFAC 67.26).
- You must respond to emailed requests (SFAC 67.21(b)).
- You must notify us of whether or not responsive records exist and/or were withheld for each below request (Gov Code 6253(c), 6255(b)).
- You must state the name and title of each person responsible for withholding any information (Gov Code 6253(d)).
- Do not impose any end-user restrictions upon me (Santa Clara Co. vs Superior Ct, 170 Cal.App 4th 1301); so if you use a third-party website to publish records, please make them completely public without any login or sign-in or Terms of Service.

Your agency must do all of the above things in your response, and you cannot wait until we file complaints.

****** We have no duty to, and we will not again, remind the City of its obligations. Instead, we will file complaints for every Sunshine Ordinance or CPRA violation. We will continue to file complaints until the City's procedures are modified to fully comply with the Sunshine Ordinance and CPRA, without caveat or exception. ******

In simple terms, I want all SB 1421 records you have retained, and I want a quantity/existence/form statement, even if you believe their contents are exempt. Just like the AG in Becerra v Superior Court, if you retained any SB 1421 records you must release your own copies, regardless of what any other agency does. Here's the full request:

1. Pursuant to Becerra v Superior Court (First Amendment Coalition, 2020), provide all records (where "record(s)" is defined specifically by Penal Code 832.7(b)(2), and REGARDLESS of whether they are prepared by or for your agency or its employees) of all incidents involving the discharge of a firearm at a person by a peace officer or custodial officer; all incidents in which the use of force by a peace officer or custodial officer against a person resulted in death, or in great bodily injury; all records relating to an incident in which a sustained finding was made by any law enforcement agency or oversight agency that a peace officer or custodial officer engaged in sexual assault involving a member of the public; all records relating to an incident in which a sustained finding was made by any law enforcement agency or oversight agency of dishonesty by a peace officer or custodial officer directly relating to the reporting, investigation, or prosecution of a crime, or directly relating to the reporting of, or investigation of misconduct by, another peace officer or custodial officer, including, but not limited to, any sustained finding of perjury, false statements, filing false reports, destruction, falsifying, or concealing of evidence. Note: The potential exception that the State AG may have under Gov Code 6255 / public-interest balancing test, which the Court of Appeal found may apply if Becerra had asked for it, DOES NOT APPLY TO YOUR OFFICE, pursuant to SFAC 67.24(g and i).

2. Please also provide an SFAC 67.21(c) written statement of the existence or quantity of these records in #1 (even if you believe their contents to be exempt) within 7 days (no extensions)

Do not destroy or discard any responsive records - we will appeal all withholdings or Sunshine violations.

FYI - If you haven't read Becerra v Superior Court, the Court of Appeals held: "We conclude, as a matter of statutory interpretation, that section 832.7 generally requires disclosure of all responsive records in the possession of the Department, regardless whether the records pertain to officers employed by the Department or by another public agency and regardless whether the Department or another public agency created the records. Although we also determine, as a matter of statutory interpretation, that the so-called “catchall exemption” of the CPRA, codified at Government Code section 6255, may apply to records that are subject to disclosure under section 832.7, our independent review leads us to conclude the Department did not adequately demonstrate that the public interest served by nondisclosure of the records at issue clearly outweighs the public interest in their disclosure. "

However, no San Francisco agency or official can use the catchall exemption/6255 due to SF Admin Code 67.24(g and i).

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

Sincerely,
Anonymous

Thank you very much. Given that you have already published to someone else these records, but without producing the audio or justifying all of your redactions, at this time please immediately email to me copies of the already-produced records which should be readily-available.

Note that we do not in any way waive complete production with full justifications and audio/video information, which will still be required as you produce them.

In response to your email dated 3-2-2020, please find a link to the 1421 records that produced for a prior California Public Records Act request. These records were previously described in my letter to you dated March 20, 2020. Due to the extensive amount of time required to footnote each redaction pursuant to San Francisco Administrative Code section 67.26, the Sheriff’s office will produce responsive footnoted redacted records as soon as reasonably possible on an rolling basis.

Dear Anonymous:
Thank you for your patience with this matter. In response to your email dated July 10, 2020, for security reasons, the Sheriff’s office unable to provide you with “a completely open/public share link.”

In order to provide the documents to you that were previously shared with you with our OneDrive link on March 9, 2020, the Sheriff’s office is willing to mail a flash drive to you via the United States Postal Service. However, the Sheriff’s office requires that any flash drive that will be mailed to you be password protected in the event that the flash drive becomes lost in the mail. The Sheriff’s office will then email the password to the flash drive to you in a separate email if you choose this option.

Please respond to this letter to let the Sheriff’s office know if you would like a password protected flash drive mailed to you care of MuckRock News, or to an address of your designation.

If you have any other requests, please contact us at sfso.foia@sfgov.org. We again thank you for your continued courtesy and cooperation with this matter.

You have cited no legal justification for your desire to restrict who can access these public records - neither a statute nor a court case. What "security reasons" would stop anyone in the public from lawfully accessing and viewing copies of these records? Is it not the case that every single person has an equal right to access these SB 1421-disclosable public records?

You cannot in fact impose any end-user conditions on access to these public records - Santa Clara Co. vs Superior Ct, 170 Cal.App 4th 1301.

If you refuse to provide a completely open, public link to the records, imposing no end-user conditions, by CoB Monday, we will file further complaints. You may want to consult your peers in SFPD, Police Commission, etc. and ask why they have not tried to restrict access to their SB 1421 records.

Supervisor of Records Dennis Herrera,

This is a new 67.21(d) petition against SFSD. SFSD in response to a records request for certain SB 1421/Becerra v Superior Court records made on Feb 22, 2020 from this email address produced, among other records, the following 41 page document on July 20, 2020:
https://cdn.muckrock.com/foia_files/2020/07/20/A2012-0073_FINAL_.pdf

They stated:
"1. A2012-0073
- Deputy E. Gonzales #1103: currently employed with SFSO
- Incident occurred on 9/10/2012 in Oakland, CA
- Officer involved shooting (off-duty)"

As SFSD refuses to comply with SFAC 67.27 and has not justified their withholding of information in writing and refuses to comply with SFAC 67.26 and has not provided footnotes or other clear references to justifications for their redactions, we challenge all of the redactions and also all documents withheld in entirety in case A2012-0073. Please determine in writing that one or more parts of these records are public, and order them disclosed.

Presumably, as an attorney who is also sworn to uphold the law, you will comply with your duty under the Sunshine Ordinance to independently review all 41 pages of documents and pass judgment on each of withheld part to identify if *any part* of the record is public.

If you choose to shirk your full obligations, here are some examples (not exhaustive) of unlawful redactions:
- Page 2, Location of incident - GC 6254(f)(2)(A)
- Page 2, Officer in Charge
- Page 3, first sentence, location
- Page 4 and throughout - name of suspect. Because the suspect was arrested, their name is public. GC 6254(f)(1)
- Page 7, 0800 hrs - unclear what was redacted
- Page 8 - all redactions in final table column
- Page 16 - location of incident publicly disclosed by Oakland PD PIO
- Page 18 - full para redacted
- Page 25 - location
- Page 26, all locations, firearm serial #
- Page 31 - location of incident report 6254(f)(2)(A)
- Page 31-39 - incident report: unredact all except private info of persons, under 6254(f)(2)(A). Note that the deputy's girlfriend, who is alleged as a victim, is not private, unless it qualifies as follows: "The name of a victim of any crime defined by Section 220, 261, 261.5, 262, 264, 264.1, 265, 266, 266a, 266b, 266c, 266e, 266f, 266j, 267, 269, 273a, 273d, 273.5, 285, 286, 288, 288a, 288.2, 288.3, 288.4, 288.5, 288.7, 289, 422.6, 422.7, 422.75, 646.9, or 647.6 of the Penal Code may be withheld at the victim’s request, or at the request of the victim’s parent or guardian if the victim is a minor."

Remember however that we are challenging *all* redactions in the linked document.

Sincerely,
Anonymous
