FOIA Request No. 2015-FOIA-02226

Dear Mr. Morisy:

This is in response to your March 27, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for records concerning automated license plate reader (ALPR) "reads" from January 2007. You also requested information including whether the read resulted in a hit/alarm, whether the hit/alarm was accepted, which hotlist(s) the hit/alarm corresponded to, whether the hit/alarm resulted in a vehicle stop, and whether the stop resulted in a citation, arrest or other action.

A search for records of ALPR records was performed, which located records responsive to your request. After due consideration, I have determined to deny the requested records responsive to your request, in their entirety, under D.C. Official Code § 2-534 (a)(2), which covers information of a personal nature where the public disclosure thereof would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy; and, under D.C. Official Code § 2-534 (a)(3)(E), as the release of this material would disclose investigative techniques and procedures not generally known outside the government. In this case, the release of such material may reveal the location of readers at fixed locations. Further, no records could be located which associate "reads" to the other information requested.

Please know that, under D.C. Official Code § 2-537 and 1 DCMR § 412, you have the right to appeal this letter to the Mayor or to the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. If you elect to appeal to the Mayor, your appeal must be in writing and contain "Freedom of Information Act Appeal" or "FOIA Appeal" in the subject line of the letter as well on the outside of the envelope. The appeal must include (1) a copy of the original request; (2) a copy of any written denial; (3) a statement of the circumstances, reasons, and/or arguments advanced in support of disclosure; and (4) a daytime telephone number, an e-mail and/or U.S. mailing address at which you can be reached.

The appeal must be mailed to: The Mayor's Correspondence Unit, FOIA Appeal, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W., Suite 316, Washington, D.C. 20004. Electronic versions of the same information can instead be e-mailed to The Mayor's Correspondence Unit at foia.mayor@dc.gov<mailto:foia.mayor@dc.gov>. Further, a copy of all appeal materials must be forwarded to the Freedom of Information Officer of the involved agency, or to the agency head of that agency, if there is no designated Freedom of Information Officer there. Failure to follow these administrative steps will result in delay in the processing and commencement of a response to your appeal to the Mayor.

There are no charges for FOIA services, in this instance.

Sincerely,
Robert Eckert
