To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 et seq.) ("CPRA") and any other applicable law, please disclose the following records.
1. All correspondence, calendar entries, notes, search slips or any other record relating to PRA request number 19–60, available at https://vallejo.nextrequest.com/requests/19-60.
2. The Vallejo Police Department’s (“VPD”) current computer aided dispatch (“CAD”) record retention policy.
3. If that policy has changed since January 1, 2014, any VPD CAD record retention policy dating from January 1, 2014 through March 4, 2019.
4. Any record created since January 1, 2014 indicating that CAD information may have been lost, corrupted or deleted.
5. A record or records containing all of the following information: regarding VPD’s current computer aided dispatch vendor and/or platform, software and/or system version number, and the date the software and/or system version was last upgraded. In addition, please disclose the same information for the second most recent version or system. This request can be read to exclude full policy manuals or other voluminous information, except to the extent that disclosure of the record is necessary to satisfy the information request contained in this subpart.
The fundamental rule of the CPRA is a presumption of public access. “In other words, [A]ll public records are subject to disclosure unless the Legislature has expressly provided to the contrary.” Williams v. Superior Court, 5 Cal. 4th 337 (1993). This presumption finds further support in the California Constitution, as amended by Proposition 59 in 2004. “A statute, court rule, or other authority, including those in effect on the effective date of this subdivision, shall be broadly construed if it furthers the people's right of access, and narrowly construed if it limits the right of access.” Cal. Const. Art. 1 § 3(b)(2).
Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, please provide a determination on this request within 10 days of your receipt of it, and an even prompter reply if you can make that determination without having to review the records in question. If you determine that any or all of the information qualifies for an exemption from disclosure, please note whether, as is normally the case, the exemption is discretionary, and if so whether it is necessary in this case to exercise your discretion to withhold the information. 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 as requested. In any event, please provide a signed notification citing the legal authorities on which you rely if you determine that any or all of the information is exempt and will not be disclosed. Please post the records to the City of Vallejo’s NextRequest website.
Please apply a fee waiver to this request. If the request for a fee waiver is denied, please provide notification of any duplication costs exceeding $20 before you duplicate the records. If the request for a fee waiver is denied, please further provide an index of all other requests since 2014 for which a fee waiver was denied, and the reason therefor.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to be in touch. Thank you.
