To Whom It May Concern:

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

1) The names of agencies and organizations with which the Agency shares Automated License Plate Reader (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;
5) The aggregate number of “detections” (i.e. license plate scans and associated data) collected during 2016;
6) The aggregate number of detections collected during 2017;
7) The aggregate number of detections collected during 2018;
8) The aggregate number of “hits” (i.e. times that a plate on a hotlist was detected) during 2016;
9) The aggregate number of “hits” during 2017;
10) The aggregate number of “hits” during 2018.

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:

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