Request #20-252
  Closed

Hi,

i am looking to obtain a record/transcript of a 911 call made to LAPD in February 2019, regarding an incident of stalking/being followed in a car on my way home. I called 911 as I was being followed at night on the 10 freeway, by my sister’s boyfriend [REDACTED]. He was tailgating me on the freeway, at night in the dark, with no headlights on. He was driving a small black, older Hyundai sedan. He followed me all the way to where I exit exit at La Cienega Blvd (southbound exit off the 10.) While I was sitting at the red light at La Cienega and Venice Blvd. after exiting the freeway, he pulled up behind me and I was able to see him (and my sister, his girlfriend) clearly sitting in the car, as they were lit up by my own car’s red tail lights. Upon seeing me get on my phone, they sped away westward on Venice Blvd. as I crossed the intersection to head to my apartment. I reported the incident to the operator over the phone, who was not able to dispatch an officer since they sped away.  

I would like to obtain a record of this call.

Dear Requester:

 

We reviewed your request for a 9-1-1 recording and/or CAD log.

 

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. Should any records be located, 9-1-1 telephone calls, recordings, transcripts, witness statements and logs are either investigatory records themselves or properly part of an investigative file and therefore exempt from disclosure. The records may be produced in response to a subpoena or court order.

 

Should any records be located, to the extent the information is recorded, a summary including the time, date, and location of occurrence, the time and date of the call, the name and age of the victim, and a brief statement of the circumstances can be made available to you upon request.

 

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

 

Respectfully,
