Dave Maass filed this request with the Tustin Police Department of Tustin, CA.

It is a clone of this request.



From: Dave Maass

To Whom It May Concern:

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

1) The aggregate number of Automated License Plate Reader “detections” (i.e. license plate scans and associated data) collected during 2019;
2) The aggregate number of “hits” during 2019.

You previously provided this information for 2016-2018. That correspondence can be found here:

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:

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 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
