Dear Requester:


We reviewed your request for surveillance video evidence and/or photos concerning the personal injury accident that occurred on June 11, 2019 at s/b Western @ 238th St. in Los Angeles, CA with a Report No. 190511178.


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.


In accordance with Section 6254(f) of the California Government Code, records of investigations conducted by, or investigatory files compiled by, any local police agency for law enforcement purposes, are exempt from disclosure.  The records you seek, including video and photo evidences, are investigative records or properly part of an investigatory file; therefore, we are denying your request.  Should any records be located, they may be available in response to a subpoena or court order.


If you have any questions, please respond to this email.
