EFF obtained this California Law Enforcement Communications System (CLETS) data from the California Department of Justice through a public records request. This spreadsheet compiles two separate spreadsheets provided to EFF: a summary of CLETS misuse investigations and a list of agencies that reported no misuse investigations. This data is part of EFF's blog post, "California Authorities Are Failing to Track and Prevent Abuse of Police Databases." Previous data available: 2011-2014 (zip) and 2015 (xls).
