Why both privacy and public safety matter with license plate reader data.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

Carlos Bolanos

As the sheriff of San Mateo County, I am dedicated to protecting public safety and the privacy of our residents. In response to a recent opinion article on automated license plate reader (ALPR) technology, I wanted to provide our county’s residents with the facts about the technology and how the data is used, shared and retained by law enforcement.California law enforcement agencies are required to have and post ALPR usage and privacy policies to ensure that the collection, use, maintenance, sharing and dissemination of the information is consistent with respect for individuals’ privacy and civil liberties.Law enforcement agencies use ALPR technology to automate manual processes that help identify stolen vehicles, vehicles used by wanted suspects, vehicles used by registered sex offenders, locating missing persons and, more importantly, to investigate criminal activity more efficiently. ALPR technology takes photos of license plates in public view and runs the scanned images through a list of plates sought by law enforcement. The system collects the photo of the vehicle, license plate number and the location data. The system does not collect personal identifying information, such as birth dates, names or criminal history. My office’s ALPR data is retained for a maximum of one year unless the information is from an ALPR that has been deployed within an area wherein the local government has requested a shorter retention period.Our data is not shared with unvetted third-party organizations. Only law enforcement personnel with a need and right to know the information may have access to the data. On the topic of ALPR data sharing and immigration enforcement, we do not share any ALPR data with “ICE to track undocumented immigrants, who have committed no offense other than trying to make a life for themselves in California without documentation,” as stated in the guest perspective “Why license plate privacy matters” authored by state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, in the April 7 edition of the Daily Journal. ALPR databases in California may not be accessed for the sole purpose of immigration enforcement as required by the California Values Act. Misuse of data by law enforcement personnel may be cause for administrative, civil and criminal penalties. Currently, Senate Bill 210 seeks to limit the retention of ALPR records to 24 hours. This would not improve privacy, but it would limit our ability to investigate violent crimes, serial criminal activity and any other crime that takes more than 24 hours to identify suspects, locate witnesses and locate victims. If the bill were passed into law, it would reduce or eliminate our ability to solve some of our most serious criminal offenses. In one example of the use of ALPR data, a suspect in Daly City exposed himself as he attempted to grab a 12-year-old female victim, who was fortunately able to escape the assault. The victim provided Daly City Police Department with a description of the suspect and his vehicle. After reviewing thousands of ALPR images, they found a match. The system was then used to locate the vehicle in San Francisco. The suspect was ultimately arrested in San Francisco for the assault on the child and for being in violation his sex offender registration. Under SB 210, the evidence that led to the identification and arrest of the suspect would have been destroyed before investigators had the opportunity to review the images.In another example, a robbery occurred at a shopping center in the city of San Mateo and witnesses provided San Mateo Police Department with the suspects’ license plate number. The car was registered in Madera, California. Historical ALPR records provided information that the vehicle had been parked multiple times in Redwood City at the same location. Redwood City police responded to the vehicle’s historical parking location and found the car with the suspects inside. San Mateo police transported the victim to the location in Redwood City, where the suspects were positively identified, and the stolen property was recovered. Historical ALPR data quickly located suspects that had no fear of harming the public and brought them to justice. Under SB 210, the historical ALPR data would have been destroyed and law enforcement would have been looking for suspects 150 miles away.I am deeply committed to public safety and the protection of privacy. I want the public to know that historical ALPR data helps us to focus our limited resources to solve crimes and save lives. I also wanted to clear up any misunderstanding regarding how we use this invaluable law enforcement tool in our community, while protecting privacy. Please visit our website to learn more about our ALPR policy and how we serve our community with pride, commitment, integrity, compassion and innovation.Carlos Bolanos is the San Mateo County sheriff.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’ Opinion Piece above was sent to the San Mateo Daily Journal he chose not to publish it on the Sherif’s Office Website.

SMCSO Website

Some Residents of San Mateo County know that Carlos G. Bolanos was illegally appointed to the position of Sheriff on July 12, 2016 by the Supervisors of San Mateo County. It was not on the Agenda , Supervisor Don Horsley who was asked to recuse himself from that issue because his son is employed by the Sheriff’s Office lead the appointment through.

It’s telling that Sheriff Bolanos uses a minor female sexual assault victim as an example of why ALPR are great.

In one example of the use of ALPR data, a suspect in Daly City exposed himself as he attempted to grab a 12-year-old female victim, who was fortunately able to escape the assault. When on April 21, 2007 Carlos Bolanos was Detained in Las Vegas during the FBI Sting “Operation Dollhouse” He was caught inside the single family residence located at 3474 Eldon Street where a minor female was the victim of Human Trafficking of Sex Slaves.

San Mateo County Sheriff Vehicle involved in the Death of a CHP Traffic stop suspect.

By Michael G. Stogner

Last night around 10:30 PM April 6, 2021 the CHP made a traffic stop in the Southbound lanes of Highway 101 just south of Millbrae Ave. The deceased exited his vehicle and before could be arrested and placed in the CHP vehicle he ran across the 4 southbound lanes and crossed over the divide and was struck and killed by the San Mateo County Sheriff SUV driven by Sgt. Andy Ward who was traveling northbound 101 in the fast lane.

The deceased was a 30 something year old male not identified yet.

It’s not clear yet wether he was handcuffed when he ran?

No mention of this on Sheriff’s Website.

Showboater Supervisor David Canepa

By Michael G. Stogner

Recognizing a photo and public speaking opportunity is David Canepa’s speciality. Yesterday he again finds himself in another Supervisors district saying nice big words he has no influence over. Here is what he said yesterday “We will not tolerate hate in San Mateo County,” said Canepa. That should have always been true in SMC

He is in the company of Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.

Has Supervisor David Canepa watched the video created by Carlos Bolanos and Steve Wagstaffe and made public of Chinedu V. Okobi’s Homicide by SIX San Mateo County Sheriff Employees in Millbrae October 3, 2018. I have asked him he has not responded. Has he made sure the Sgt Zaidi was criminally charged for filing a false police report in that investigation?

Has Supervisor David Canepa made any public comment when Barbara Bonilla was first removed from her office as Executive Director of the Sheriff Activities League. Barbara Bonilla worked for Carlos G. Bolanos back at Redwood City Police Department in the early 2000’s and she was his campaign manager in 2018. She was finally criminally charged by the Attorney General’s Office after investigating her for Embezzlement and Money Laundering.

Has Supervisor David Canepa made any public comment about the Homicide of Sandra Lee Harmon by one and possibly two San Mateo County Sheriff Deputies in Half Moon Bay on May 5, 2021. The City requested the A.G. Criminally Investigate Sheriff Bolanos and District Attorney for there many false statements after the fact. No evidence of a shoot out, Tampering with Evidence the moving of 3 shell cases. The refusing to provide the Axon Log Records which would verify the statements by both that Deputy Dominguez turned off his Body Worn Camera before he shot an unarmed woman in the back while her hands were above her head. Also it looks like he fired first.

Has Supervisor David Canepa ever done anything to make sure Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe would never use their authority to cause harm to a fellow Law Enforcement Officer like x San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez. One of the many false charges that they held a Press conference for was Smuggling a cell phone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang member in Maguire jail. What did he say when those charges were simply dismissed 2.5 years later? Nothing

What did Supervisor David Canepa do when he learned about that, The Sheriff Office and the District Attorney’s Office used as a WEAPON to cause COLLATERAL CONSEQUENCES to a Sheriff Deputy? Nothing

Has he listened in to any of the recent Juan P. Lopez Court Hearings remember 6.5 years and counting?

He can today 9:30 AM 1-206-279-9591 code 631595

Another False Statement by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

This should come as no surprise to any reasonable thinking resident of San Mateo County.

His identification was unknown until January 2021 when detectives received a break in the case from a witness who identified the suspect as 30-year-old Kaylan Freeman from the San Mateo County Coast.”

That is a False Statement, Just ask San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Gonzales, The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office knew who Kaylan Freeman was since March 2014.

Press Release

The real question is, What was the Sheriff’s Office really doing since 2012?

Sheriff’s Office eliminated SHOP and all dedicated, sexual-offense investigators with a 75% reduction in staffing in 2007 right after Operation Dollhouse the FBI Sting Operation.

What happens when San Mateo County Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos lies to the public? Nothing.

Update: I forgot to mention during the Campaign for Sheriff 2018 Candidate Mark Melville told every Editor who met with him that Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos was a LIAR. Not one of the Print Media Newspapers printed that.

I would tell you the name of the State of California’s Prosecutor if I knew it and I’m sure the person said it twice now but to be honest I could barley hear what they were saying, I had to listen by phone.

This case was investigated as an Embezzlement and Laundering case involving SAL FUNDS.

The best thing the Attorney General’s Office can do for Public Trust is to take this case all the way to trial. No Plea Deal also it would be nice if they made a Public Comment on the Case Period.

Remember this was a Embezzlement and Laundering Investigation being conducted by both San Mateo County Sheriff Office which you have to ask Why? would the Sheriff Office be involved in investigating one of there own and the California Attorney General’s Office who is prosecuting this case.

On February 10, 2020 Barbara Bonilla was escorted from her office of Executive Director of San Mateo County Sheriff Activities League (SAL). The SAL is a division of the Sheriff’s Office. At that time Barbara Bonilla was employed by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

Barbra Bonilla is well connected and well known for her Fund Raising abilities. She was also Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos’s Campaign Manager for his 2018 run for Sheriff. April 2017 She donated $1,000 to his campaign. She was on the Boards of National PAL, California PAL, Redwood City Rotary, San Mateo County Parks and Rec Commission.

In May of 2020 she resigned from the Sheriff’s Office. Why? She was not charged with any crime and even if she was it doesn’t mean there is any evidence of a crime. The former Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez case is a prefect example of that. “Smuggling a Cell Phone and Drugs to a Hells Angel Gang member in SMC Jail.” ZERO evidence to support those charges, they were dismissed.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe referred the Criminal Investigation to the State of California Attorney General because he was a member of the board of SAL. He wanted to avoid the Appearance of a Conflict of Interest. That is always a Good Idea when Public Trust is an issue.

San Mateo County Sheriff’Office should have done the same. Why would Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and all Sheriff Employees think they should Investigate Barbara Bonilla at all. If Steve Wagstaffe couldn’t Investigate it for an Appearance of a Conflict of Interest certainly the Sheriff’s Office had more of a Conflict of Interest.

The A.G.’s Office and the Sheriff’s Office worked together in the Criminal Investigation of Embezzlement & Laundering. The DOJ had expected to have Barbara Bonilla Arrested as early as April 2, 2020, but that arrest did not occur. Why?

Laundering Money, one of the easiest ways to accomplish this is Prepaid Gift Cash Cards you buy at many Stores. Did this element exist in the SAL Investigation? YES it did.

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos News Release December 4, 2020 Bonilla Arrest

The last sentence in the SMCSO News Release dated December 4, 2010 says: “this investigation is still underway and being handled by an outside agency.” It doesn’t identify that outside agency WHY?

When I asked SMCDA Steve Wagstaffe who’s Criminal Investigation was this he informed me it was the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

December 12, 2020

Good morning Michael,

It was charged by the Attorney General’s Office, so it would be described as a DOJ case.  I believe that is how it would be listed in statewide statistics, since I believe they list the prosecuting agency. But the investigating agency would be the Sheriff’s Office.

Thanks

Steve

At this moment it is still unclear Who the Investigative Agency was and is.

Normally I would attend the Court proceeding, Today I will not, there is a Pandemic. Stay Safe

Welcome to San Mateo County

Another False News Release by SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos.

By Michael G. Stogner

Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos

A reasonable person in San Mateo County would know by now not to believe anything Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos or his Public Information Officers publish or provide to the public.

The News Releases dated October 3, 2018 involving the Homicide by Deputies of Chinedu V. Okobi is just one example.

The Recent Homicide by Deputies of Sandra Lee Harmon May 5, 2020 Half Moon Bay is another.

Now we have a News release issued December 4, 2020 by the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office about Barbara Bonilla being arrested on December 4, 2020. On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000. That is a Baldface Lie. If that was a TRUE statement there would be a Booking Photo dated December 4, 2020. Its that simple.

SMC Sheriff News Release 12/4/2020

You’ll notice there is No Booking Photo provided by the Sheriff’s Office, Why? Did any of the other print media request the Booking Photo of Barbara Bonilla? I have.

From the News Release: “SAL is a non-profit organization affiliated with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.” That is an understatement, Sheriff Activities League (SAL) is a Division of San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.

From the News Release: “The investigation determined that approximately $25,000 was missing.

Did the State of California Department of Justice (DOJ) Investigate the Sheriff Activities League Executive Director and others for 10 months for approximately $25,000 of MISSING money. The Investigation was for Embezzlement and Laundering not Missing money. Why did the Investigation take 10 months if it was only $25,000?

I would like to see what the DOJ says the total amount is, not what Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos says.

Why was Barbara Bonilla not arrested on April 2, 2020 as the DOJ expected?

Barbara Bonilla SAL Embezzlement case. Police Report SEALED, Why?

By Michael G. Stogner

Barbara Bonilla

This case is being Prosecuted by the State of California A.G. Office.

The Public understands that people are just human beings and there a bad apples everywhere. When one is discovered we the people expect those who know to speak up, Notify the Public Immediately. San Mateo County Sheriff Activity League of all the organizations involving Children, Volunteers, Donors and Sheriff Deputies should have been the first group of people to inform the Public about this Embezzlement. All 7 Print Media in SMC should have had front page stories about this on February 10, 2020. None of them did. ClimateRWC should have had the story first Adam Alberti the Editor is on SAL Board, he knew.

Barbara Bonilla x Sheriff Activities League Director Finally Arrested.

By Michael G. Stogner

Barbara Bonilla

Update: March 5, 2021 Chris Rasmussen, joined the SAL Board in February 2021. His name and photo are now on the SAL Board webpage, He is NOT one of the people who Knew and said nothing.

Update December 11, 2020: It turns out there is NO EVIDENCE to support Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos News Release of December 4, 2020 “On Friday, December 4, 2020, Bonilla was booked into the San Mateo County Jail on 7 counts of Grand Theft. Bail was set at $70,000.” No booking photo, and no record of her being in Jail or Court until December 9, 2020.

Sheriff Bolanos 12/4/2020 News Release

This case is being Prosecuted by the State of California A.G. Office.

Barbara Bonilla the former Campaign Manager for Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos in 2018, and a former San Mateo County Sheriff Employee until she resigned while being investigated by the State of California Department of Justice since February 10, 2020 when she was escorted from the SAL offices in Redwood City. She was also on the San Mateo County Parks and Recreation Commission, as well as on the Boards for State and Federal Police Activity Leagues (PAL) Associations.

She has been charged with 7 felony counts after being Independently Investigated by the A.G.’s Office for Embezzlement and Laundering. San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe had to refer the Investigation to the A.G. because he is also on the Sheriff Activity League Board. Her bail was set at $70,000 she should be out by now.

Here is the Short List of people who knew and said nothing.

HMBR August 14, 2020 State Concluded it’s Investigation.

If that were true what took so long to file charges? Thats over 3 months to file charges.

Why would the Police Report be ordered Sealed?
