Dear Chief Ganter,
Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, we are writing on behalf of UC Berkeley Law School’s Samuelson Law, Technology & Public Policy Clinic to request a copy of the records detailed below. We are researching how probation departments in California use electronic monitoring for juveniles on probation. To that end, we request the following records:
1. Electronic Monitoring Vendor Contracts:
All current contracts between the county and vendors providing electronic monitoring equipment and software.
2. Electronic Monitoring Probationer Contracts:
All electronic monitoring-related contracts between the county and juvenile probationers. These contracts contain the terms and conditions to which juveniles must consent.
3. Electronic Monitoring Program Policies:
All policies and guidelines for the county’s administration of the electronic monitoring program. This includes but is not limited to information relating to program entry, a probation officer’s caseload, supervision standards, guidelines for issuing and responding to violations, guidelines for damaged or malfunctioning equipment, and program completion standards.
