Request #19-132

November 17th, 2019

Dear Custodian of Public Records,

Pursuant to my rights under the California Public Records Act (Government Code Section 6250 et seq.), I ask to obtain a electronic copy of the following, which I understand to be held by your agency:

The record I am requesting is a copy of the BART police department's restraint use policy.

I ask for 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 record[s] in question.

If you determine that any or all or the information qualifies for an exemption from disclosure, I ask you to note whether, as is normally the case under the Act, 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, I ask that you 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.

If I can provide any clarification that will help expedite your attention to my request, please contact me through email in the next request portal.

Thank you for your time and prompt response to this matter.


/s/ Hayden Hodges
