RE: Public Records Act Request
To whom it may concern,
Pursuant to my rights under the California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 et seq.), I ask to obtain a copy of the following, which I understand to be held by your agency:
- Police data from all incidents on and around the USC campus (East boundary: Hill Street; north boundary: 23rd Street; west boundary: Normandie Avenue; south boundary: Exposition Boulevard) within the past 5 years.
- Transcripts of all 911 calls on and around the USC campus (East boundary: Hill Street; north boundary: 23rd Street; west boundary: Normandie Avenue; south boundary: Exposition Boulevard) within in the past 5 years.
I ask for a determination on this request within 10 days of your receipt of it. I would appreciate an even prompter reply if you can make that determination without having to review the records in question.
If you determine that any or all of the information qualifies for an exemption from disclosure, I ask you to note whether, as is normally the case under the Act, the exemption is discretionary, and if so whether it is necessary in this case to exercise your discretion to withhold the information.
If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, I ask that you redact it for the time being and make the rest 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.
You can contact me at 541-760-4879 or firstname.lastname@example.org for any clarification. I would prefer it if you would notify me to any duplication costs before you duplicate the records.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
All the best,
