Request Closed   Hide Public

Dear Mr. Schwanitz:


My office will close out your public records request dated September 24, 2018 (identified as #18-5529), which sought to inspect the following records:

This is a formal request under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act. I wish to inspect the following record below.

  1. We would like to request the computer automated dispatch report and all audio recordings from 911 and 242-COPS as it pertains to a call that was created at 23:03 on Sept. 21 or by the Albuquerque Emergency Communications Center in which officer Bernadette Sanchez (Man Number 5558) was dispatched to Richmond and Central in reference to a shots fired call.
  2. We request any other lapel camera video/CAD reports/recordings/calls that may have been created that are related or connected to this incident.

We cannot permit inspection of these 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). If made public the requested records would seriously interfere with the effectiveness of a criminal investigation or prosecution. Additionally, if produced those records might unfairly cast suspicion on or invade the privacy of an individual accused but not indicted for an alleged criminal offense. Right now my office is unsure how long we will continue to maintain this exemption, however, you are welcome to submit a new public records request for the same records at a later date. Additionally, you are also welcome to call my office and ask for an update on this investigation or submit an oral public records request.


My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
