Dear custodian of records:
Under the California Public Records Act § 6250 et seq.,I am requesting an opportunity to inspect or obtain copies of public records that include all communications - telephone call transcripts, text messages, letters, and email- between the Los Angeles Police Department and representatives of WestBridge Technologies. I also request an opportunity to inspect of obtain copies of any other public records that mention WestBridge Technologies, including memorandums of understanding, meeting notes or personal schedules.
If there are any fees for searching or copying these records, please inform me if the cost will exceed $100. However, I would also like to request a waiver of all fees in that the disclosure of the requested information is in the public interest and will contribute significantly to the public’s understanding of surveillance technologies. I am a member of the news media and this request is for news gathering purposes. This information is not being sought for commercial purposes.
The California Public Records Act requires a response within ten business days. If access to the records I am requesting will take longer, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.
If you deny any or all of this request, please cite each specific exemption you feel justifies the refusal to release the information and notify me of the appeal procedures available to me under the law.
Thank you for considering my request.
