From: Darlene DiPierro

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

SB 1421 became law in January 2019 in the State of California. (
Under it, records pertaining to certain kinds of police incidents are newly eligible for disclosure under CPRA.

I am making the following request for all sworn police officers with the agency between the years of 2015 and the current year to date.

I hereby request a roster of the sworn officers with the agency during the years of 2015-2021 year-to-date. In other words, a listing of all the officers that were sworn officers at any time during that time period -- not just officers that have been sworn officers throughout the entirety of that period. Please indicate the year that their sworn service began and ended (if applicable).

I also request the following records for each listed officer at the agency:
a) incidents involving the discharge of a firearm at a person by a peace or custodial officer
b) 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
c) any record(s) relating to any incident(s) 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
d) any record(s) relating to any incident(s) 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
e) any civilian complaint that is not otherwise encapsulated by the aforementioned

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
