San Francisco police announce new web-based system for filing public records request

SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — The San Francisco Police Department has implemented a new way to request public records in an effort to maintain transparency and openness, police announced on Monday.

Using a new web-based system, media and members of the public can request documents, information and records from the department, according to police.

The new system will help police better track and process the requests.

Additionally, the new system will allow police to create proactive pages, which contain frequently asked questions and frequently requested documents without having to file a formal request, police said.

Requests can also be mailed, emailed or faxed, however those requests will be entered manually into the new system by a staff member, police said.
