For items 1-4: This information is easily available within the Agency’s Vigilant Solutions 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

For items 5-8: This information is easily available within the Agency’s Vigilant Solutions 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.

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 City Clerk's Office will contact you within fourteen (14) days as to whether the City of Torrance is in possession of records responsive to your request.
Thank you for your interest in the City of Torrance. If you have any questions, or wish to discuss this further, please contact the City Clerk's Office at (310) 618-2870.

--- Please respond above this line ---
Dear Requester, The City of Torrance has declared an Emergency in response to the COVID-19 crisis ( Proclamation of Existence of A Local Emergency and Resolution No. 2020-11 ). In addition, the State of California has issued a "stay home" order (Executive Order N-33-20) and the County of Los Angeles has issued a "Safer At Home" order (issued 3/21/2020), which are applicable to the City of Torrance.  Accordingly, City Hall is closed to the public and many City Departments, including the City Clerk's office, are operating with reduced staff. This Emergency impacts the City’s ability to provide services that are not immediately essential for the protection of public health and safety. Therefore, in most instances, the City anticipates delays in responding to both previously received and new requests in light of the Declared Emergency . For those who wish to submit a request for public records, please continue to submit your request through https://www.torranceca.gov/government/city-clerk/public-records-request . The City will provide status on all public records requests every 30 days until the request is completed. This practice will continue until 45 days after the declared Emergency has ended. Thank you for your interest in the City of Torrance. We apologize for any inconvenience this delay might cause. Sincerely, City Clerk's Office City of Torrance
