On August 27, 2018, we received your public records request (identified as #18-4885) for the following records:
Copy of police report #180047944 as well as any and all photographs, videos, body cams, and other investigative material.
This email will acknowledge completion of your public records #18-4885. First off, thank you for your patience during this process. It took a few days longer than anticipated, however, we believe the time it took was reasonable because in order to conduct a thorough and comprehensive search it required reaching out to multiple individuals to assist my office in determine what responsive records could be produced.
We now have the non-exempt responsive records available for copying, as you indicated you desire copies. You may pick up copies of the responsive records at:
SECURITY STATION – 1stFLOOR
Law Enforcement Center
400 Roma Ave. NW
Albuquerque, NM 87102
Please contact (505) 768-2137 or (505) 768-2141 between the hours of 8:00 – 4:30. Provide security with a copy of the attached invoice. Please make payment by cash ($34.50)or billed to your account. Payment may also be made by company check made payable to City of Albuquerque.
If you are seeking to inspect the responsive records at no cost, then please contact my office and we will provide more information on the location of that inspection. The inspection may take place either at the aforementioned location, but more likely it will occur at the Office of the City Clerk, located at 600 2ndStreet NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102. That office is located on the 7thfloor of that building. Please contact the Office of the City Clerk (505) 924-3650 if you have any questions related to the inspection at their office.
As for the remaining records, we cannot permit inspection of those records because they are exempt from disclosure for the following reasons under the Inspection of Public Records Act: including NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records); § 14-2-1(A)(8) (otherwise provided by law), including, but not limited to: NMSA 1978, § 32A-4-1 et. seq. (Abuse and Neglect Act); NMSA 1978, § 32A-4-1 et. seq. (Victim’s Rights); and NM Const. Art. II, § 24 (Rights of Crime Victims). 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.
