Dear Requester:



We reviewed your request for the following:


"I would like a copy of the LAPD's annual complaint report for 2018 and 2019" (sic)


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.



The Annual Complaint Report for 2018 can be found at the following link:


In regards to your request for a copy of the 2019 annual complaint report, a search was conducted and The Annual Complaint Report for 2019 is not yet available.



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