Request #19-2500

Pursuant to the state open records law, California Government Code Sections 6250 to 6276.48, I write to request access to and a copy of (electronic preferred) the vehicle inventory list for the Los Angeles Fire Department. This list should contain a listing of all motor vehicles owned and operated by the department. This list should include, at a minimum, the vehicle shop number, license #, assignment, vehicle identification number (VIN), year, make, model, and vehicle type.


Thank you!

Dear Requester:

The LAFD has received and reviewed your CPRA request.

A search of multiple databases (written and electronic) would be unduly burdensome for the Department as interpreted in the “public interest” provision of section 6255 of the Act, and would require a separate search for each item requested. The courts have interpreted this provision to include an exemption where production of the requested documentation would be unduly burdensome to the public agency involved.  Therefore, your request is denied.
