Dear Mr. Schwanitz:
My office will close out your public records request dated April 7, 2019 (identified as #19-2191), which sought copies of the following records:
Thank you for your patience during this process. 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 you may purchase a copy of the non-exempt records. .
As per the conversation today with your Office and the IPRA Custodian, the Radio Communication/Dispatch will not be needed
Lastly, my office also determined is was necessary and appropriate to withhold the production of certain record(s) 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) including, but not necessarily limited to NMSA 1978, § 32A-4-1 et. seq. (Abuse and Neglect Act); NMSA 1978, § 31-26-4 et. seq. (Victim’s Rights); NM Const. Art. II, § 24 (Rights of Crime Victims), NMSA 1978, § 29-10-1 et seq. (Arrest Record Information Act). If made public those 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 charged 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. You may access your invoice by signing into your
