Dear Requester:

We reviewed your request for:

“Any and all available LAPD records regarding a fire at 8812 South Ramsgate Ave., Westchester, CA 90045 on March 28, 2018.” (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.

 

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.  However, based on the information provided we are unable to locate any records.

 

If this was a fire-related emergency only and the call was referred to paramedics, the Los Angeles Fire Department may have records responsive to your request.
