Dear Ms. Titus:
This correspondence regards your Inspection of Public Records Act (“IPRA”) request dated October 2nd 19, 2017 (Request #17-4355) and received by my office soon thereafter. The request sought the following records:
- Request for copy of Computer-Aided Dispatch (CADs) audio for Albuquerque Police Department case # 17-0080440. All 911 calls, all calls for services, all dispatches.
We cannot permit inspection of these records because they are exempt from disclosure under IPRA, NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records); and NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1(A)(8) (otherwise provided by law). If made public the requested records would seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. At this time my office is unsure how long we will continue to deem the requested records exempt under the law, however, we encourage you to resubmit your request at a later date.
My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
