To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Oregon Public Records Law, I hereby request the following documents:
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:
An example of this record may be found at this link:
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:

The aggregate number of detections collected during 2017.
The aggregate number of “hits” (i.e. times that a plate on a hotlist was detected) during 2016.
The aggregate number of “hits” during 2017.
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.

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 would request your response within ten (10) business days.
I am replying to your records request dated February 15, 2018 in which you requested Automated License Plate Recognition (ALPR) data from the Tigard Police Department.
Public records requests that involve more than one half hour of staff time for identification, location, retrieval, review, and duplicating will include a charge for staff time, in this case $69.45 per hour, in addition to a charge for any copies made based on the fee of $10.00 for the first 15 pages and $0.30 per page thereafter or $10 per CD. All records requests for which the estimate exceeds $50 will require a payment of the estimated charges in advance. The request will not be started until the deposit is received. It is estimated that your request will take a minimum of two hours. A deposit of $138.90 (2 x $69.45) will be required before any such request for records is started. Once the deposit is received, your request will be processed and you will then be notified of any additional charges that will need to be submitted to this agency before any records are sent to you.
The deposit may be paid in person by cash, check or credit card or by mail in a check or money order with your written request to Tigard Police Department, 13125 SW Hall Blvd., Tigard, OR 97223<https://maps.google.com/?q=13125+SW+Hall+Blvd.,+Tigard,+OR+97223&entry=gmail&source=g>; attn. A. Farrier.
DISCLAIMER: E-mails sent or received by City of Tigard employees are subject to public record laws. If requested, e-mail may be disclosed to another party unless exempt from disclosure under Oregon Public Records Law. E-mails are retained by the City of Tigard in compliance with the Oregon Administrative Rules "City General Records Retention Schedule."
Thank you for your note.
We have received these exact records free of charge by more than 50 agencies (and growing) across the country. I believe your charges are unreasonable and prohibitive. I urge you to reconsider these fees and support transparency.
We will not be providing any payments regarding this request.
I have received your follow up to a previous request below. Attached is a form for “Request for Fee Waivers or Reductions”. If you would like to request a fee waiver please complete, return to me and I will process.
