Request #19-688

November 18, 2019

Dear custodian of records:

Pursuant to my rights under the California Public Records Act, as clarified by California Proposition 59, I respectfully request the following records, which I understand to be in your possession or that of your trustees, employees, officers, agents, servants, consultants and/or contractors acting or purporting to act on your behalf:

  • Requesting the names and badge numbers of every Vallejo police employee on paid administrative leave as of 11-18-2019. 

If the records I am seeking exist electronically, I ask that you please provide them in that same electronic format.

If I can answer questions about the format or provide any clarification that will expedite this request, please contact me directly.

I assume that you are the custodian of these records but to the extent that you are not the custodian of these records, I ask that you please forward this email immediately to the proper custodian of records, and tell us who that person is.

If you determine that any of the requested information qualifies for an exemption from disclosure, please note whether the exemption is discretionary, and if so, whether it is necessary in this case to exercise your discretion to withhold it. If you determine that some but not all of the information is exempt from disclosure and that you intend to withhold it, please redact it for the time being and make the rest available. In any event if you determine that any of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed, please provide us with a signed notification that cites the specific legal authorities which you believes justifies that exemption.

Please note that any delay in allowing the public to view public documents is allowed only to resolve good faith doubts as to whether all or part of a record is accessible by the public. That being the case, access is to be provided “promptly,” not put off for 10 days (Government Code 6253, subd. (b)); to underscore this point, subd. (d) states that “Nothing in (the CPRA) shall be construed to permit an agency to delay or obstruct the inspection or copying of public records.” 

Thank you for your commitment to serving the public interest through an open and transparent government process.
