Hello

I received your fax today in regards to your initial fax with your PRA request for Records. I responded to your PRA request by email yesterday and placed a hard copy in the mail as well. I've also attached that response once again in this email. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you,

Hello Ms. Moreno,

It is the responsibility of the law enforcement agencies to allow the public access to certain information obtained during the normal course of daily business. The law requires law enforcement agencies to provide information the public has the right to know. The report of crimes and incidents written in the course of business of a law enforcement agency are public records and subject to release under CPRA. These non-exempt public records include, without limitation:

Arrest logs
Calls for service logs
Crime reports
Accident reports

Where records contain both exempt and non-exempt information, the agency must redact the exempt information and provide the records.

Your response does not indicate whether you have any exempt or non-exempt records at all. The CPRA requires agencies to notify the person making the request whether the agency has, in whole or in part, responsive information and records, and whether those records will be produced or withheld as exempt from production. If the agency is withholding records it claims as exempt, it must link the particular exemption to the particular record being withheld.

Your response does not indicate if you have any responsive records or not. If you have no records, exempt or non-exempt, responsive to the request, please state that. If you do have records responsive to the request, you must produce any non-exempt records and information. If you do have records responsive to the request, and claim they are exempt, you must inform me which exemption applies to which record. References to Government Codes and vague discourses on individual privacy rights is non-responsive and does not suffice under the CPRA.

Please inform me whether you do or do not have any responsive records or information and provide all non-exempt records and information at your earliest convenience. Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Robert Teel
