Hi there

Your first City of Albuquerque record request (request number #21-3203) has been submitted.
It is currently unpublished and is not available for the general public to view.

Greetings:

 

        We have received your request for public records and will begin processing your request. This response is currently being sent to all individuals who submit requests to the City of Albuquerque to explain the effect that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our processing of requests for public records.

         Processing requests for public records during the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging. At various times, City offices have been closed or functioning at limited capacity in an effort to address public health concerns and City employees have been teleworking to comply with the requirements of various public health orders. Moreover, during the pandemic, the City has also received more public records request than ever and in 2020 received over nine-thousand requests.

          While we will remain in contact with you regarding your request, it is taking us longer than normal to process requests. The delays are as unique as each individual request, so we can’t say for certain how they’ll impact this request. We have noticed a few trends though. We are often able to process requests for copies of permits within the Planning Department, and requests for single Police and Traffic Accident reports within fifteen days.   The City Council and The Office of Neighborhood Coordination are also generally able to process their requests in fewer than fifteen days.  Requests involving police lapel camera footage, combinations of different types of police records, human resource matters, and email searches, are all currently taking significantly longer, and may take 45-60 days or longer. While this information is intended to provide notice of how long a request may take, these time frames are not absolute.

             Please note that if you are requesting a basic traffic accident or offense report, the Albuquerque Police Department Records window at 400 Roma NW, Albuquerque New Mexico 87102 is now open from 8:00AM – 4:00PM and can accept in person requests or requests by phone at 728-2020.  If you elect to make your request to the Records Window, please let us know so that we can close your request in our system. 

 

           While we are working to fulfill requests where possible and as quickly as possible, the effect of the pandemic on our response time cannot be overstated. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and this extremely unpredictable impact it is having on our work, the City requests an “additional reasonable period of time” to complete the request. NMSA 1978, § 14-2-10.

 Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to know the status of your request.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ethan Watson

City Clerk

Request #21-3203.
