- Any and all statements whether written or recorded; and
- Any and all inspections/examinations of the vehicles involved.
If you have any question, please feel free to contact me.
I apologize for the delay in communicating with you. My office had to reach out to several individuals within APD and other City departments to finalize our search, and review of the records. The City has completed our search and review of all responsive records. We now have the non-exempt responsive records available for your inspection, or alternatively you may purchase a copy of the non-exempt records. Please be aware the non-exempt records are largely if not entirely the records that were previously made available to you/your office in the previous IPRA request #18-3329.
Please be aware, my office determined it was necessary and appropriate to withhold the production of certain record(s) which are exempt from disclosure for the following reasons under the Inspection of Public Records Act: including NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1(A)(4) (confidential law enforcement records); § 14-2-1(A)(8) (otherwise provided by law), including, but not limited to NMSA 1978, § 132A-4-1 et. seq. At this time, my office is unsure how long we will continue to claim these exemptions. Please submit a follow-up IPRA request at a later date if you still desire to inspect any of the records that are exempt from disclosure. Alternatively, you are also welcome to call my office for an update on the case.
You may pick up copies of the non-exempt responsive records at:
SECURITY STATION – 1st FLOOR
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 ($5.50) 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 2nd Street NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102.
