To whom it may concern:
I am writing to request a record of all responses to calls for service (dispatch responses) from the Los Angeles Police Department for the years 2005 to the present, or as many years as are available. Specifically, I am requesting the following information:
Data Observation (Rows): Call for service responses
Time Frame: 1/1/2005-Present
Data Fields: Dispatch code, Call Description, Priority Level of Call, Call Disposition, Address (with Street, City, Zip), Geographic Coordinates, Police Division, Police Beat, Time of Call, Date of Call
I am requesting these records in digital format as csv or excel files transferred via email or some other internet platform transfer, rather than as DVD discs.
These records have been released to the public for more recent years through the Los Angeles Data Portal for your city and police department (http://www.lapdonline.org/home/content_basic_view/63993).
Please let me know if there is any way that I can help to clarify or complete the request. I understand that completing this request may require payment to cover administrative or operational costs.
Thank you for your assistance and help in this matter.
