Communications

From: S


To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the The Missouri Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

1) The names of agencies and organizations with which the Agency shares Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) data;
2) The names of agencies and organizations from which the Agency receives ALPR data;
3) The names of agencies and organizations with which the Agency shares “hot list” information;
4) The names of agencies and organizations from which the Agency receives “hot list” information;

This information is easily available within the Agency’s LEARN system. The simplest way to extract this data is to generate an “Agency Data Sharing Report” PDF file from within LEARN. To do this, a user may simply go to the “Sharing” section of LEARN and select “Output Report.” A CSV/XLS file containing these records would also satisfy this request.

The instructions for extracting this data is described on pages 62-63 of the LEARN Agency Manager Guide, which may be found at this link:

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3860685-LEARN-5-1-Agency-Manager-Guide.html

An example of this record may be found at this link:

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3936113-Palos-Verdes-Estates-Police-Department-Data.html

A number of other agencies have regularly determined the above information constitutes a public record and have provided an “Agency Data Sharing Report.” These agencies include:

Anaheim Police Department, Antioch Police Department, Bakersfield Police Department Chino Police Department, Clovis Police Department, Elk Grove Police Department, Fontana Police Department, Fountain Valley Police Department, Glendora Police Department, Hawthorne Police Department, Irvine Police Department, Livermore Police Department, Lodi Police Department, Long Beach Police Department, Montebello Police Department, Orange Police Department, Palos Verdes Estates Police Department, Red Bluff Police Department ,Sacramento Police Department, San Bernardino Police Department, San Diego Police Department, San Rafael Police Department, San Ramon Police Department, Simi Valley Police Department, and the Tulare Police Department.

We further request the following records

The aggregate number of “detections” (i.e. license plate scans and associated data) collected during 2018 and 2019.
The aggregate number of detections collected during 2018 and 2019.
The aggregate number of “hits” (i.e. times that a plate on a hotlist was detected) during 2018 and 2019.
The aggregate number of “hits” during 2018 and 2019.

This information is easily available within the Agency’s LEARN system. The simplest way to extract this data is to generate a “Dashboard Hit Ratio Report” PDF file from within LEARN. We would prefer the data for each year to be provided separately.

An example of this document may be found at: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3870802-Sacramento-PD-Hit-Ratio-Rpt-010112-051917-Redacted.html

The instructions for extracting this data is described on pages 78-79 of the LEARN Agency Manager Guide, which may be found at this link:
https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3860685-LEARN-5-1-Agency-Manager-Guide.html

The following agencies have regularly determined the above information constitutes a public record and have provided an “Dashboard Hit Ratio Report.” These agencies include:

Anaheim Police Department; Bakersfield Police Department; Chino Police Department; Clovis Police Department; Elk Grove Police Department; Fontana Police Department; Irvine Police Department; La Habra Police Department; Laguna Beach Police Department; Lodi Police Department; Sacramento Police Department; San Diego Police Department; San Ramon Police Department; and the Red Bluff Police Department.

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 or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

John Anderson, with Lucy Parsons Labs

From: St. Louis County Police Department

Good morning Mr. Anderson:

Regarding your request below, I have the following information.

In response to points 1, 3 and 4, the St. Louis County Police Department does not share ALPR data with any other agency. Additionally, it does not share or receive “hot list” information with or from any other agency.

In response to point 2, it would take an Information Systems Architect approximately 15 minutes to compile this data at the rate of $55.63 per hour = $11.13.

Please note I have numbered the last four items for reference. Can you please identify the difference between items 5 and 6 and items 7 and 8?

The number of “hits” and “detections” for 2018 were collected in response to a prior request; therefore, no research time is needed and can be provided at no charge (see attachments). The amount of research time needed for a Mobile Tech Specialist to compile the aggregate numbers for 2019 is approximately one half hour at the rate of $19.49 per hour = $9.75.

The estimated total to process your request is $20.88. We can begin to process your request once payment is received, and based on the present workload, it should be completed approximately within two weeks after payment is received. We accept cash, credit cards (in person only) and checks or money orders (payable to St. Louis County). It can be sent to the address below my signature. Please send it to my attention along with a copy of this email.

Please note this is an estimate. If the actual amount is more, you will be required to pay the difference prior to receiving the documents. If the actual amount is less, you will be refunded the difference. In addition, the response time is only an estimate given the existing work load, and is also subject to change. Additionally, the fee provided is based on the salary that results in the lowest amount of charges.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Regards,

Hi Francis,

Yes 5&6 and then 7&8 respectively are the same, so ignore this duplication. This was a leftover copying mistake.
I gladly accept the fee rate, and will send a check over shortly.

John Anderson, with Lucy Parsons Labs

From: St. Louis County Police Department

Thank you Mr. Anderson:

I thought that might have been the case but wanted to make sure. Actually, beginning next week, we will have a new Custodian of Records. Please send the fee to the attention of Lt. Craig Molden.

Hi,

I have yet to receive this documentation, even though I paid for it already. What is the delay?

John

From: St. Louis County Police Department

Good afternoon,
I want to first apologized for the delay, with all the personnel changes in the Police Department, things have slowed down. Pursuant to your request for #2, The St. Louis County Police Department only receives the ALPR data from ourselves. Due to just finding this information out, I will be refunding $11.13 back to you. To whom should the check be addressed and what address should it be sent to? I have also attached the documents responsive to your request.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Have a great weekend.

Hi,

Can I get the actual generated report for parts #2? Even if it lists "None", I'd like the actual official documentation.

John

From: St. Louis County Police Department
