The California Public Records Act, CPRA was a law passed by the California State Legislature in 1968 requiring inspection and or disclosure of governmental records to the public upon request, unless exempted by law. The CPRA is similar to the Freedom of Information Act, except for the fact that "the people have the right of access to information concerning the conduct of the people's business" is enshrined in Article 1 of the California Constitution due to California Proposition 59 known as the Sunshine Amendment. Exemptions to the CPRA are narrowly construed and the public agency bears the burden of proving that an exemption applies. Exemptions under the CPRA are set forth under Section 6254 and are specific as to certain records or types of records. California obtained statehood on September 9, 1850. California is divided into 58 counties which include 482 incorporated cities and towns, of which 460 are called cities and 22 are called towns.

Q: how can I removed my public record?
by Taylor
A:All records do not come from the same place, some may have common providers, but there’s not a single place that has all the records, therefore, no one place can eliminate them. There may be services which do that, or claim to do so. If you find the source, you will see what you need to remove or strike erroneous data. Once the record/information is out from the initial source, it can take a life of its own and go to many other databanks or work in conjunction with other data. Removal of information and its procedures is specific to the type of record and its custodians or departments.

Q: California public records act and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
by open-public-records

Open public record and meeting statutes, sunshine laws, freedom of information act are just a few ways to describe the same thing, the right to request and obtain copies from the government. Although the federal government was not the first to face transparency issues, when the federal freedom of information act passed, many states modeled their laws after the federal government's.

As states pass their own public records and open meetings laws, some are more favorable toward transparency and others privacy. However, these statutes are amended to meet new technologies for methods of obtaining information. An example of this scenario is when there were debate regarding government employee emails and whether this type of information is subject to disclosure.

Statutes are now better in tune with technology. There have been many statutes passed in recent years to better serve the public’s need, specially when there’s an investigation into a government department. The California Public Records Act (CPRA) was passed 1968 by the state's voters and more recently proposition 59 in 2004. Groups, organizations and concerned citizens feel that open records promotes government accountability. These laws have many agencies appointing a public information officer in charge of requests.

When requestors believe that the agency is in violation of public record laws, they go to court. Many of these cases set a precedence for related upcoming issues. There are many gray areas, but the public information officers role is not to determine whether or not open records laws apply.

Here are a few organizations: National Freedom of Information Coalition, First Amendment Coalition in San Rafael, Californians Aware in Carmichael, CA, First Amendment Project.

Q: If an address is made public through various venues, why can't I get someone's residence from the California department of motor vehicles?
by ted slovic
A:Safety and liability are a major concern when dealing with personal information, whether is it private or public. One piece of information may be public, such as the address, but when the department of motor vehicles puts it with a person's name, it can become a problem of intrusion for the individual.

Different departments can enforce their own policies as long as they are not interfering with the freedom of information statutes. Another example are deeds that show a person's spouse or family trust, therefore, agencies need sometimes set their own policies. Electronic databases are not an exception. Many court records that are available online contain personal information that the agency would rather not be easily released. Although these records are deemed public, a requestor can be asked for a permissible purpose for the information. The data can be modified to have portions omitted from being released. Similar to how court records were blacked out.

Q: Are Public Records Used To Spy On Others?
by Questionnaire
A:If you consider others looking at your public information spying, the answer is obviously yes. How far can a member of the public that I don’t even know go into my records? How much can they find out? How do I know when some is looking at my information? The answers are no longer as obvious to most people, even when it comes to public records.

How much can be found out from public records? The most accurate answer will come from you conducting a search of your own records, or hiring a professional to do so. Conducting a search on ourselves gives us the advantage of not looking for records, such as a criminal history, when we’re well aware that they will come back blank, so no need to bother and waste money. However, don’t be easily fooled into getting too comfortable, this is a only minor set back, not to mention that the person searching may be better skilled in finding records than you are.

Do we know all the information out there about you? You will have few of your peers say “Well, you already know all the information about yourself out there, what are you looking for?”. Not necessarily! Self background checks are conducted for just that reason. Many conducting a check on themselves, whether on their own at home from a computer or a hired service, are surprised at the amount of information that’s out there. Even after tireless efforts being made fighting identity theft, a wealth of information is still readily available. On one side you have privacy protections and on other side the people’s right to access public records.

When does the right to public records interfere with individual privacy? Individual privacy excludes companies and public entities as they do not have the same protections. Privacy and the right to access public records do cross each other’s paths. Financial information is protected but bankruptcy filings can be requested from the courts, is everything within the record open to the public? Can the public see assets listed within a divorce case file? There are a multitude of questions in regard to privacy, and cases should be looked at individually. Adding to the problem is erroneous information about you that’s out there.

What are my options? Each individual’s case can be different and there is no single quick answer for everyone. The information available can vary greatly from one person to another. However, there are tips which can be helpful to the average person. Begin with conducting a fishing expedition of your own records of anything and everything which may possibly contain your name, tel. number, address, business/company, affiliations/association with others and social networks. Remember that information about you can be in places where you’d never imagine since companies sell public data to each other. Are you skilled in looking and finding records? If not, hire private services for a better thorough job. The more time and/or money you spend, the more likely you are to find additional information.

Q: Asking questions in open forums about how to obtain arrest records.
by johnallen
A:When we're faced with a problem which we have no answer to, we look to others for assistance. With the internet being a big part of making our lives easier, many turn to blog and forums looking for helpful tips. However, there are many that go unanswered. The tips below are from a full time blogger with over 6 years of experience in the field.

Be Concise

Provide the information clearly. Organize your thoughts before typing them in, organize it further once typed in. Make sure your message is getting across before posting it. Put yourself in a reader's place which has no background knowledge of you or your issue.

Check The Spelling
Spelling errors are an unnecessary hindrance to getting your question answered correctly. Remember, the person reading your post for the first time does not have any background information and may be easily confused. Additionally, there's no legitimate excuse other than lack of effort as spell check is automatically in place.

Be Specific Without Giving Too Much Information

There is a balance between posting too much information and being too vague. Being too vague presents a good possibility of not having your question answered, whether due to the answer being too broad in return or not helpful at all. On the other hand, making your question too detailed can effectively lose your readers. Keep a balance of making your point as easily as possible and as seemingly as you can with adequate information to respond.

Questions With Names Are Discouraged
Why is that? Why can't I ask if John Doe was convicted of this horrible crime which I just described? The answer is made clear in this sample question. When posting a question, many forums will look to filter posts that refer to an individual's name which can be incriminating.

Giving And Receiving Legal Advice
This one to most readers is a no brainer! But others, maybe due to desperation, will ask for advise regarding a legal matter. This is not recommended for obvious reasons. However, advise about legal procedures, where and how to find sources for the information is encouraged. Responses which cite the source and refers to answers found elsewhere are often posted with credit. Credible personal experiences that can be helpful are also passed on to readers.

There's nothing to say and guarantee that some unintended post don't get through from time to time. Some may have hidden messages or simply slipped through under the radar. The best efforts are made as an unpopular forum is ineffective. In other terms, there's great motivation to keep the blog and it posts within certain proper guidelines.

Q: I am interested in names and addresses of people arrested in California last week. Where can I find this info? Thanks for the help.
by Moe
A:One avenue to take is by looking at jail or in-custody lists from the arresting agency. You will probably not get the address. You can see the location where the arrest took place. You can look at news wires, some publications have a weekly list of recent arrests. They may mention the city where offenders are from, but again, probably not the address.

Q: Where do I find press releases directly from California public officials?
by admstf
A:The Los Angeles county website shows a list of press releases by public office and individual government department. The first through the fifth district press releases of each supervisor is listed along with department from the assessor’s office to the recorder’s office. These press releases are a means for the department or council members to communicate with the public and get their message out. The assessor’s office is a great example of one of many purposes of their press releases. In a press release the assessor’s office discusses the issue of declining home prices and their assessments. The press release offers details regarding the approach the department will be taking. The district attorney’s office press releases lists charges and arrest within its jurisdiction dating as far back as 2003 when accessing the department’s archives. The clerk recorders office releases information of election results and other voter events. Other agencies such as the California highway patrol and many other law enforcement departments have live incident reports.

Q: Which area in CA has the highest auto thefts?
by statstf
A:The National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) releases statistical information regarding auto thefts in the U.S. These statistics are compiled from National Crime Information Center for each area. In the latest reports, Fresno is listed as number one in auto thefts in 2010 with 7,559 cars stolen and 7,621 in 2011. Modesto is in second place with less than four thousand thefts. Bakersfield Delano area had just over five thousand thefts but ranked third. The rankings are not solely based on the number of thefts but calculated by using the census bureau's previous year population estimates and the number of thefts. The NICB vehicle theft study methodology specifically shows how the numbers are compiled. These statistics are not the same as pointing to the highest overall crime rates. Other cities such as St. Louis, Chicago and Oakland have higher violent crime rates. The latest news offers information that is more specific than the statistical information. The Fresno police department announced that they will try to curtail the rising crimes in their areas by increasing law enforcement. There have been complaints in certain areas nearby Fresno State University's campus by students attending school.

Q: Can anyone please clarify 'Metropolitan Statistical Areas'?
by alice
A:Metropolitan Statistical Areas are regions that have large dense populations having an impact, generally economical, to the state or region but are not cities or counties. New York city, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas are the amongst the highest in population and a typical example of metropolitan areas. MSAs are used by the government to reveal public data that includes unemployment figures, housing, income and more. There are three hundred and sixty six MSAs as defined by the United States Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The areas have a urban core area with a minimum population of fifty thousand persons or more. There are other factors in designating an MSA such as the adjacent counties, various social and economic impact. Of the 366 Metropolitan Statistical Areas of the United States, the smallest is Carson City Nevada with a population of just over fifty five thousand residents. At the bottom or worse unemployment rates amongst these areas are El Centro in Imperial county, CA with 26.8%, Yuma in Yuma County, AZ 26%, Yuba in Sutter County AZ 18.8%, Merced, Merced county with CA 18.8% and Modesto in Stanislaus County, CA with 16.4% unemployment. Data is not always obtained by looking at the population or demographics of the area, they can reflect employment rates of an industry, occupation, education, training as well as other categories. Occupational data shows the fastest growing industries and occupations. The 2010 employment projections show Personal Care Aides at the top of list with a 70 percent growth in the next ten years. Averages are other statistics provided that would reveal information such as the average employment and wage for an occupation. For example, the mean hourly wage (total of all wages divided by the employees of a particular occupation) across the U.S. for all occupations is $24.96

Q: What's the largest city in California or anywhere to go bankrupt?
by publicq's
A:Stockton will be the largest city in the U.S. to file for bankruptcy to date. Amongst main contributing factors that lead the city’s Chapter 9 filing are lower revenues from property taxes after the housing market downfall. Other factors in the city’s path to bankruptcy were loans to build hotels, a promenade, marina and other amenities to attract conventions and businesses. A surplus of homes were also built to meet a hopeful and optimistic future that have raised the amounts that residents and builders having loans that aren’t being paid and property that is not producing income. The city not only suffers the second highest rate of foreclosures in the country, it is also the second most violent city in the nation. 190 million dollars were spent on Stockton building the marina, city hall, city parking garages and an entertainment center. There have been cuts to the city’s budget such as cutting the police force by 25%, fire and rescue by almost a third and pay reduction, lowering other city workers by 43%. Bond holders, retirees and contractors are to feel most of the cuts after the bankruptcy. The river port city voted and passed a law regarding debt mediation adding an important tool to city officials bargaining. Projections show the city’s deficit to be between $20 to $38 million dollars in 2012-2013. Incorporated on July 23, 1850, Stockton is located in San Joaquin County and is California’s 13th largest city. There have been negative press articles about the city by Forbes naming Stockton as the most miserable city in the United States. The Central Connecticut State University named it the least literate in the county in 2005 and 2006. The county government, unified school district and medical center are the city’s largest employers.

Q: Are there any requirements for being the custodian of records?
by pubquestion
A:Custodian of records background checks. Starting from January 1st 2011, penal code 11102.2(b) requires 'custodians of records' to undergo a background check. All custodian or records must pass a finger print based search of criminal records processed by the DOJ. Individuals applying for custodian of records will be rejected if a history of felonies, offenses connected to fraud, deception or other indications of dishonesty are found. The application process requires applying agencies to complete annual notification, application for confirmation and a live scan request form and pay the processing fees by the department of justice and the federal bureau of investigations. Every agency, whether state or federal, is enjoined to appoint a minimum of one custodian of records with the responsibility and duty to satisfy requests for information from the public under the law. This is to enforce the duties of government agencies in providing public records and have specific personnel appointed with the responsibility of these tasks. This is in efforts to eliminate past frustrations of 'getting the runaround' from department employees none of which being in charge of or responsible for lawful public requests. These regulations are in place addressing the responsibility of a government agency regarding their departments employees. There are many other laws in place in efforts to facilitate the public's request for records such as guidelines for reasonable agency fees and timeliness to respond. There is a certain amount of time allotted to respond to requests. Since there are many types of records and the burden of providing them can be time consuming, guidelines can vary greatly. To maintain a balanced budget, fees are requested or cutbacks would affect the process.

by pc

Q: Does the information in the news end up in criminal background histories? Is the information from the same source? What if the person was arrested and not charged, will that information appear?
by Nick
A:Criminal records are generally of convicted offenders. Arrests alone and warrants may not appear in background checks you order from a company or the state. The sources of information are usually from the agency that shows up on the current or archived article. So if a person is charged and arrested without a conviction, the information will most likely not show up on background criminal histories. There are many sources to conduct a background checks for prior criminal convictions. Some private companies as well as the state agencies provide this service. Between the companies and various government agencies, what is they cover can vary quite a bit. So checking to see the coverage listed in their site will give a good picture of what you should expect. Some only show criminal records and others can include other public information such as assets, recorded real property, addresses and so forth. Basically, there is no one standard background check for everyone. What you can get depends on the sources you have used. Employers within guide lines are common requestors of background checks. When concerned what others will see about you, try to use the same source used by the possible employer. If the arrest updates scroll through, chances are the employer is not monitoring for a particular name. The greatest challenge may be finding out what source an employer is using to conduct the background searches. The prospective employees can request a copy of their background checks and you will be able to see what is in the report, but by then it may be too late. The next application may possibly to an employer using a different service. Some employers, mostly lager ones, will state a background search will be ordered directly on the application. Many of the applications from companies are available online. So, by doing your homework, you can find out what you need right from your computer anywhere. The news information may be archived for a period of time. It is probably better for an employer to search there if the history dates back far enough to be worth the effort. Another point to consider is the level of security required by the position being sought. For higher security clearances, even by private firms that may be contracted by the government or working with proprietary products, background checks can include the services of private investigator conducting the search.
