We reviewed your request dated September 9, 2019 for a “911 call logs for a slip and fall at Food 4 Less located at 1700 West 6th Street, Los Angeles on August 3, 2019 around 4:43 pm”.
Your request was made under the California Public Records Act (the Act). The Department is cognizant of its responsibilities under the Act. It recognizes the statutory scheme was enacted to maximize citizen access to the workings of government. The Act does not mandate disclosure of all documents within the government’s possession. Rather, by specific exemption and reference to other statutes, the Act recognizes that there are boundaries where the public’s right to access must be balanced against such weighty considerations as the right of privacy, a right of constitutional dimension under California Constitution, Article 1, Section 1. The law also exempts from disclosure records that are privileged or confidential or otherwise exempt under either express provisions of the Act or pursuant to applicable federal or state law, per California Government Code Sections 6254(b); 6254(c); 6254(f); 6254(k); and 6255.
A thorough and proper search was conducted and no records responsive to your request were located.
If the call was referred to paramedics, the Los Angeles Fire Department may have records responsive to your request.
