To keep our citizens and police officer safe, while being as transparent as possible, we reviewed all materials and redacted them, where necessary, according to Government Code § 6254, subs. (f). To be specific, we only redacted content:

  • describing law enforcement tactics,
  • security or safety procedures,
  • and information not publicly known that should not be disclosed for safety, security, or investigative reasons.
