Dear CPRA Records Custodian,
This is a California Public Records Act request.
As you know, new amendments to the Penal Code (https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billTextClient.xhtml?bill_id=201720180SB1421) have removed confidentiality classifications for records of investigations of police officer-involved shootings. Per the law, your agency shall make public the following types of records regarding OIS investigations:
"all investigative reports; photographic, audio, and video evidence; transcripts or recordings of interviews; autopsy reports; all materials compiled and presented for review to the district attorney or to any person or body charged with determining whether to file criminal charges against an officer in connection with an incident, or whether the officer’s action was consistent with law and agency policy for purposes of discipline or administrative action, or what discipline to impose or corrective action to take; documents setting forth findings or recommended findings; and copies of disciplinary records relating to the incident, including any letters of intent to impose discipline, any documents reflecting modifications of discipline due to the Skelly or grievance process, and letters indicating final imposition of discipline or other documentation reflecting implementation of corrective action."
Please provide me with the following types of records maintained by the Community Police Review Agency:
1. Any and all investigative reports regarding Case #18-0249, the shooting of Joshua Pawlik by several Oakland police officers.
2. Any and all discipline reports or findings or other documents which describe whether or not the CPRA determined that policies were violated by any officers whose conduct was investigated in Case # 18-0249.
3. The letter of transmittal by which CPRA informed OPD of its findings in Case # 18-0249.
