Dear Sergeant Soto,

Thank you for your prompt reply,

Government Code Section 6254(f) is indeed a long code section. I don't wish to be difficult, but I understand there are five reports within the requested time period responsive to my request. I am confused whether the statement you provided (which appears to be information authorized under Gov. Code Sec. 6254(f)(1)) applies to all five incidents, or whether there are four other separate incidents?

Could you please provide the information authorized under Sec. 6254(f)(1) pertaining to the other four incidents? In addition, I am requesting for all five incidents: (1) the names and addresses of the each party involved in or witness to the incidents; (2) the statements of all parties involved in the incidents; (3) the statements of all witnesses to the victim(s) or other persons suffering loss as a result of the incidents; and (4) and any other information in the files authorized under Gov. Code Sec. 6254(f) the body of which states,

"However, state and local law enforcement agencies shall disclose the names and addresses of persons involved in, or witnesses other than confidential informants to, the incident,

the description of any property involved,

the date, time, and location of the incident,

all diagrams,

statements of the parties involved in the incident,

the statements of all witnesses, other than confidential informants, to

the victims of an incident, or an authorized representative thereof,

an insurance carrier against which a claim has been or might be made, and

any person suffering bodily injury or property damage or loss, as the result of the incident caused by arson, burglary, fire, explosion, larceny, robbery, carjacking, vandalism, vehicle theft, or a crime as defined by subdivision (b) of Section 13951,

unless the disclosure would endanger the safety of a witness or other person involved in the investigation, or unless disclosure would endanger the successful completion of the investigation or a related investigation.

However, this subdivision does not require the disclosure of that portion of those investigative files that reflects the analysis or conclusions of the investigating officer.”

It is unfortunate I have to make this request at all. However, it is made in connection with a serious matter and is important information. I thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Robert Teel

Re: Public Records Request of July 31, 2017. Reference #: P000017-080117

Dear Robert Teel:

In response to your 8-9-17 e-mail:

The information I provided is the arrest information, from the one report, that is public information by law.  The code you listed, GC 6254(f), requires specific information be disclosed to "victims of the incident or their authorized representative."  Since you are not a listed victim in any of those reports, and the other four reports are not arrest reports and products of police investigations, they are exempt from disclosure.  Unfortunately, the information provided is all that will be disclosed without a subpoena or court order.

Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please respond to this email.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Richard Soto

Hi Sargent Soto,

I appreciate the clarification. It is my understanding that there are five reports, one of which is an arrest record. The other four I will describe as an incident report (a complaint or investigation record) which are being withheld under Gov. Code. Sec. 6254(f) as I am not a victim, or representative of a victim, of the incident.

Can you provide me with a copy of the actual arrest record document itself redacted so it only reflects the information required by law to be disclosed, to wit:

Anne Marie Catlett, 12-17-66, female, 5'8" tall, 130 lbs., blonde hair, green eyes, arrested on 9-30-2004 at 0031 hours, for 273.5 P.C. - Spousal Abuse, Realtor at the time.

As I mentioned before, this involves a serious matter and I am informed a redacted public record document itself is admissable as evidence, whereas your email setting forth the information may not be. Accordingly, I would like to request a redacted copy of the actual document/arrest record.

I apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your consideration and professionalism.

Sincerely,
Robert Teel

Mr. Teel,

The arrest information provided is all that is required to be disclosed.  We redact reports that have confidential information, but in order to receive a redacted report you have to be a victim in the report or produce a subpoena for the arrest report itself.  Unfortunately, that does not apply here.

I am sorry that is not exactly what you would like, but that is all we can do at this time.
