Hello Ms. Hughes,


On February 16, 2018, we received your request to inspect the following records:

RE :  report number 18-0011912Date of accident 2-4-18 I40 mm 15  between Juan Tabo and Eubank in the WB lanes-  fatality  Our driver Ellis, Hugh

We are requesting the 911 calls and the officer body cam, as well as the full accident report.


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.
