Dear Requester:

 

We reviewed your request.

 

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 extent that your request seeks investigatory records pertaining to a wide variety of subjects, the Department responds as follows:

In accordance with the California Government Code, Section 6254(f), records of investigations conducted by, or investigatory files compiled by, any local police agency for law enforcement purposes are exempt from disclosure. To the extent that records were located, they are either investigatory records themselves or properly part of an investigative file. Therefore, we are denying your request. The records may be provided pursuant to a subpoena or court order related to pending litigation.

 

The extent that your request seeks communications pertaining to a wide variety of subjects and persons, the Department responds as follows:

 

A search of email communications based only on keywords or domain names would be unduly burdensome for the Department as interpreted in the “public interest” provision of Section 6255 of the Act, and would require a separate search of each individual email account of approximately 14,400 Department email accounts.  The courts have interpreted this provision to include an exemption where production of the requested documentation would be unduly burdensome to the public agency involved.  Therefore, your request is denied.

 

For all other categories of information, the Department responds as follows;

Your request is not “a request for a copy of records that reasonably describes an identifiable record or records” [see Government Code Section 6253(b)]. Please provide additional information such as names, dates of incidents, booking and/or DR numbers so that a search for responsive records can be conducted.

 

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

 

Respectfully,

 

LAPD Discovery Section, CPRA Unit
