Re:      Public Records Act request for documents concerning use of COPLINK and LEAP Network

 

To whom it may concern:

 

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, California Government Code sections 6250 et seq., I write on behalf of the ACLU of Southern California to request records[1] relating to the acquisition and use of the COPLINK or LEAP Network databases by Los Angeles Police Department employees.

 

Specifically, please provide copies of all records mentioning or referencing the acquisition or use of COPLINK or LEAP Network by the Los Angeles Police Department, including, but not limited to:

 

  1. Any and all contracts or agreements between the City of Los Angeles or the Los Angeles Police Department and Forensic Logic, Inc. concerning the purchase, acquisition, or retention of COPLINK or LEAP Network. Please include any and all scopes of work, attachments, and documents referenced and included in any such contracts and agreements;
  2.  
  3. Records referencing the purchase, acquisition, subscription to, or payment for COPLINK or LEAP Network, including any grant applications, budget requests, loans, donations, or other funding sources for any such purchases;
  4.  
  5. All policies, procedures, guidance, or memoranda governing the Los Angeles Police Department’s use of COPLINK or LEAP Network, including documents containing information on the kinds of information included in the databases;
  6.  
  7. All product manuals, training materials, or other records describing the features of and uses of COPLINK or LEAP Network; and

 

  1. Any brochures, white papers, manuals, reports, or other materials provided to the City of Los Angeles by Forensic Logic, Inc. or by International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) relating to COPLINK or LEAP Network;

 

  1. Any agreements, MOUs, contracts, guidance, or other types of records that contain information sharing policies between the Los Angeles Police Department and Forensic Logic, Inc. involving the use of COPLINK or LEAP Network;
  2.  
  3. Any agreements, MOUs, contracts, guidance, or other types of records that define information sharing policies between the Los Angeles Police Department and IBM involving the use of COPLINK or LEAP Network;
  4.  
  5. All documents concerning the sharing of information recorded by Los Angeles Police Department officers in COPLINK or LEAP Network databases with law enforcement in other jurisdictions, including federal agencies.
  6.  
  7. All other communications to or from any Los Angeles Police Department employees concerning the use of COPLINK or LEAP Network;
  8.  
  9. All other communications between any Los Angeles City or Police Department employee and any third-party vendor that sells, leases, or otherwise makes available COPLINK or LEAP Network, including but not limited to Forensic Logic, Inc. and IBM;
  10.  

If you determine that some but not all the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, we ask that you redact it for the time being and make the remaining responsive records available as requested. In any event, please provide a signed notification citing the legal authorities on which you rely if you determine that any or all of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed. If we can provide any clarification that will help expedite your attention to our request, please contact Sarah Rahimi at srahimi@aclusocal.org or Mohammad Tajsar at (213) 977-9500, ext. 268.

Because this request is on a matter of public concern, and the ACLU of Southern California is a nonprofit public interest organization, we request a fee waiver. See North Cty. Parents Ass’n v. Dep’t of Ed., 23 Cal. App. 4th 144 (1994). We also request that documents be provided in electronic format if possible. Doing so would eliminate the need to copy the materials and provides another basis for our requested fee waiver. If, however, such a waiver is denied, we will reimburse you for the reasonable cost of copying. Please inform us in advance if the cost will be greater than $50.

According to the California Public Records Act (California Government Code § 6253(c)), a response is required within 10 days. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Please furnish all applicable records to us at srahimi@aclusocal.org if in electronic format or, if in physical form, at 1313 W. 8th St. Suite 200, Los Angeles, CA 90017.

 

 

                                                                                                         Sincerely,                                                                                                         Sarah Rahimi

                                                                                                          ACLU of Southern California

 

 

[1] Throughout this request, the term “records” includes but is not limited to any paper or electronic information, reports, evaluations, memoranda, correspondence, letters, emails, charts, graphs, flyers, meeting agendas, meeting minutes, training materials, diagrams, forms, DVDs, tapes, CDs, notes, or other similar materials.
