Dear Mr. Schwanitz,
My office will close out your public records request dated January 5, 2019 (identified as #19-68), which sought copies of the following records:
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), including, but not 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), and NMSA 1978, § 29-10-1 et seq. (Arrest Record Information Act). 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.
I, Nyvia Barraza, as APD’s records custodian am responsible for this denial. My office will close out your request. Please let me know if you have any questions.
