The Los Angeles Port Police are cognizant of our responsibilities pursuant to the California Public Records Act (CPRA) and diligently respond to them in a timely and responsible manner. The CPRA does not mandate disclosure of all documents within the government’s possession. Rather, by specific exemption and reference to other statutes, the Act recognizes that there are boundaries where the public’s right to access must be balanced against such weighty considerations as the right of privacy, a right of constitutional dimension under California Constitution, Article 1, Section 1. The law also exempts from disclosure records that are privileged or confidential or otherwise exempt under either express provisions of the Act or pursuant to applicable federal or state law, including California Evidence Code § 1041; Penal Code § 841.5; Government Code § 6254(b); 6254(c); 6254(f); 6254(k); and 6255. For additional exemptions, visit CA Legislative Information.
