This email is in response to your public disclosure request dated August 6, 2015 and received by the Seattle Police Department’s Public Disclosure Unit on August 6, 2015 for all e-mail between your staff and those of the Council of State Governments (csg.org)

Please find the final installment of requested records attached.

Redactions have been applied throughout the document titled (r_P2015-5034 2nd installment) pursuant to RCW 42.56.10 and/or other statutes,

· Computer/Telecom Passwords/Security/Internal-Use Only Phone Numbers: Information regarding the infrastructure and security of computer and telecommunications networks, consisting of security passwords, security access codes and programs, access codes for secure software applications, security and service recovery plans, security risk assessments, and security test results are exempt from disclosure pursuant to RCW 42.56.420(4). Explanation: Unauthorized access to the information could disrupt police operations, negatively affect police investigations, endanger citizens/law enforcement personnel, result in theft, fraud or other criminal activity, and expose law enforcement personnel to harassment.

· Social Security Numbers and Tax Identification Numbers (RCW 42.56.230(5); see also RCW 9.35.005). Explanation: Disclosure would violate an individual’s right to privacy, and could be used for identity theft, fraud or other criminal activity. SSNs of agency employees, volunteers, and their dependents are also specifically exempt. (RCW 42.56.250(3)).

We have not prepared a detailed exemption log for records because only limited information has been redacted from the responsive records. The information normally provided in an exemption log, such as title, author, recipient, subject, and number of pages, is readily ascertainable by looking at the redacted records.

You may file a written appeal of this response with the SPD’s Legal Unit within ten (10) business days from the date of receipt. Please include your name and address, a copy of the redacted document and a copy of this letter together with a brief statement identifying the basis of the appeal.
