Hello Mr. Tinker,


On January 29, 2018, we received your request to inspect the following records:

I'm trying to obtain copies of the Lapel Cameras used by APD Officers on APD case # 170123210. My understanding is that there should be videos tagged by two different officers for November 19, 2017 for this case.


These records are exempt from disclosure under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, Section 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records) and (A)(8) (as otherwise provided by law). Unfortunately, we cannot permit inspection because, if made public the requested records could seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if disclosed the records could alert potential defendants to destroy evidence, coordinate stories, or flee the jurisdiction. Further, incomplete investigations contain information that might unfairly cast suspicion on and invade the privacy of innocent people.


These records will no longer be exempt when the investigation is complete. My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
