To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
All available misconduct records or serious use-of-force investigations regarding Vallejo Police Department officer David McLaughlin. According to news reports, McLaughlin was hired by the Vallejo PD in 2014: http://amp.ktvu.com/news/vallejo-cop-under-fire-for-assaulting-marine-has-aggressive-past-video-shows
Please note that under Senate Bill 1421’s amendments to California Penal Code sections 832.7 and 832.8, certain types police misconduct records are now public records under California law. These records include:
- Records related to any incident where a law enforcement officer fired a gun at a person (regardless of whether someone was hit), or used force that resulted in serious injury or death.
- Records related to incidents where the agency found that an officer committed sexual assault against a member of the public—which includes attempts to coerce sex or proposition sex while on duty.
- Records related to incidents where the agency found that an officer engaged in dishonesty in the investigation, reporting, or prosecution of crime or police misconduct. This kind of dishonesty could include filing a false report, testifying untruthfully, or planting evidence.
I therefore request any such records concerning McLaughlin during his employment at the Vallejo PD.
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.
