Hi Steve,
Thanks so much for your answers to
the I questions posed in my recent CPRA request. I have forwarded the same CPRA request to the City of Menlo Park and members of the Menlo Park Police Department. I look forward to meeting with members of the MPPD to view the camera footage, in the near future. Thanks for all of your assistance in this matter.
Best regards,
Aram James

Since the case is nearly concluded (convicted on June 22, 2015 of felony resisting arrest causing injury and sentencing is set for August 26, 2015), I would assume the footage would be available for inspection within the police department rules. That request should be directed to the Menlo Park Police Department.

>> Hi Steve,
>> I hope you are doing well and finding time to enjoy this outstanding summer weather. In reference to defendant Tuga Leuea's case, reported in today's Daily Post (June 24, 2015, p-4) there is reference to a member of the Menlo Park Police Department breaking their arm in two places during an altercation/struggle with Mr. Leuea.
>>
>> I would like to know the following. 1. What is the name of the Menlo Park police officer whose arm was broken in two places? 2. What injuries did Mr. Leuea receive as a result of the reported struggle/alteration? 3. Did the Menlo Park police capture the incident on their officer worn cameras? 4. Is the footage of this incident available for public viewing? 5. If so, what steps does a citizen watchdog need to take to set-up a viewing of the camera's footage? Thanks as always for your time and consideration.
