Request #17-3350


Pursuant to my rights under the California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 et seq.) and the California Constitution, as amended by passage of Prop 59 on November 3, 2004, I am writing to request inspection of the following records, which I understand to be in the possession of your agency:

  • Log of individuals prosecuted for “encroachment” (San Diego Municipal Code §54.0110 and “illegal lodging “ (California Penal Code Section 647), following arrests on suspicion of those charges by the San Diego Police Department in September 2017 since my initial records request received on Oct. 17, 2017. I previously provided a log of arrests that the City Attorney’s Office might find helpful in responding to this request that I would be happy to provide again as needed.

I would respectfully request a response within ten days, as statutorily required.

However, if any of these requests is ambiguous or does not match the file nomenclature of your agency, I would appreciate your cooperation so I may narrow the requested description to facilitate your production with a minimum of expense or disruption on your part.

If you intend to claim an exemption under the statute for any of the records described above, I would appreciate (a) the production of documents or redacted documents that do not invoke that objection, and (b) a log of all documents described above for which you claim exemption, and for which you claim or have redacted portions – with the citation of the exemption claimed.

I offer to pay for the reasonable reproduction costs of documents requested pursuant to law. If, however, that sum were to exceed $50, I would appreciate advance notice of that anticipated billing, its amount and projected basis.

In general, where one document includes the information identified above, you need not produce any other document that includes the same content. In addition, I am ready to visit your offices and to inspect the files personally at a mutually convenient time, in order to reduce your costs of compilation, and my costs in duplicating documents that are cumulative.

Finally, should you deny part or all of this request, you are required to provide a written response describing the legal authority or authorities on which you rely. Please also address the question whether Prop 59 requires disclosure even though authorities predating Prop 59 may appear to support your exemption claim.

Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
