Dear Requester:

 

We reviewed your request for:

 

“copies of all communications sent either to or from any email ending in @dataminr.com to the Los Angeles Police Department that mention any of the following terms from the dates of May 26, 2020 to the present: “protest,” “protester,” “demonstration,” “black lives matter,” or “BLM.” “


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.

 

A search was conducted, and the responsive documents have been provided to you. Please be advised that in accordance with Section 6254(c), confidential portions have been withheld from the documents provided.

 

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

 

Respectfully,

Dear Requester:

 

I have reviewed your California Public Records Act request. 

 

Please be advised that, pursuant to California Government Code Section 6253(c), I have found that “unusual circumstances” exist with respect to the request due to the need to search for, collect, and review the requested records from other Department entities which are separate from the office processing the request.  Therefore, my staff will require the statutory fourteen days extension of time in which to respond.  A determination concerning your request will be made as soon as possible.

 

If you have any questions regarding this correspondence, simply respond to this email. 

 

Respectfully,

Dear Requester:

 

 

The Department continues to process CPRA requests as they come in during the COVID-19 public health crisis, and will endeavor to do so in a timely manner.  While the Department will be making every effort to comply with its statutory obligations, due to the COVID-19 crisis and the City and Department's efforts to tackle its effects, the actual production of records responsive to your request (if any) may be delayed if Department resources are needed to perform critical functions or are constrained due to the pandemic.  The Department greatly appreciates your patience during this difficult time, as the entire community and nation deals with this unusual and serious situation.  During this crisis, the Department would also ask that requesters consider postponing the submission of any requests that can wait until after the immediate crisis has abated.

 

 

If you have any questions, please respond to this e-mail.

 

 

Respectfully,
