  5. Privileged communications within or between agencies, including:
    • Deliberative Process Privilege
    • Attorney-Work Product Privilege
    • Attorney-Client Privilege
  6. Information that, if disclosed, would invade another individual's personal privacy.
  7. Information compiled for law enforcement purposes that:
    • Could reasonably be expected to interfere with enforcement proceedings
