We have conducted a diligent search for records responsive to your request. We have located records responsive to portions of your request and are releasing them to you. We found no documents responsive to your request for the following:
documents containing or matching the following phrases in the document title or filename, from the calendar year 2019:
- "Encampment response SOP" or "Encampment response standard operating procedure"
- "Resolved sites & ReEncampment Tracking"
We are only able to search for and produce records under the control of San Francisco Public Works; however, we believe the Healthy Streets Operation Center (HSOC) would be able to provide additional records to you. As noted in the document HOSC.pdf, which we provided, you should be able to request these records from the Department of Emergency Management, which is available through this portal.
If you have trouble accessing the files, we can burn the responsive records onto a CD at a rate of $1 per CD or load the responsive records onto a flash drive at a rate of $4 per flash drive. Fees for duplication are subject to change and postage is an additional cost.
If hard copies are needed, we can provide hard copies of any 8.5x11 documents that are made available to you at a cost of 10 cents per copy, as allowed by the San Francisco Administrative Code § 67.28(c). This section states "a fee not to exceed 10 cents per page may be charged." Postage is an additional cost.
Please note that the Public Records Act requires an agency to make available to any person a copy of an “identifiable record or records” in its possession, unless the record is specifically exempt from disclosure. (Please see California Government Code § 6253(b).) The City’s obligation under the Sunshine Ordinance, like the Public Records Act, is to produce public records in its custody. (See San Francisco Administration Code § 67.20(b).) There is no requirement that a department or officer construct a document to meet the specifications of the request.
Please note that it is not necessary to create a NextRequest account to view responsive records. Once they have been released, a link, valid for 30 days, will be provided to view the records. Additionally, unless privacy concerns prevent it, Public Works makes all records requests visible to the public. You may search for requests at https://sanfrancisco.nextrequest.com/.
This concludes your public records request.
