Hello Mr. Schwanitz,


On February 10, 2018, we received your request to inspect the following records:

pertaining to an officer-involved shooting around midnight on January 7th, 2018 near Central Avenue and Zuni Road in Northeast Albuquerque.
1. All police reports, All accident reports
2. All 911 calls
3. all surveillance, lapel, RTCC, dash-cam and witness videos tagged into evidence for this investigation related to searches, and interviews.


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). 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.  


Thank you,


Nyvia Barraza
