Should your agency not have all of the requested records within a single record or document, please provide me the relevant documents that do, even if that requires more than one class of document. Should some of the records be unavailable, please let me know ahead of time so that we can narrow the request accordingly.

As the records responsive to this request are imperative for understanding how search warrants are executed, I ask that the public interest of these records be evaluated to the extent that the public's interest outweighs this request's burden. To add, this request is being sent to the largest city of every state and will be collated together to create a comprehensive map of search warrants throughout the US.

Thank you for your response. If I'm understanding this correctly, these appear to to be 13 new requests. Is that correct? Will your office be doing any sort of liaising of the requests? (Both in terms of making sure that they're completing the request, and acting as the middle-man to provide the records.)

From: New Mexico Courts

Good morning.

These are 14 new requests forwarded to each of the 13 judicial districts in

specifically ask for search warrant records where a Return of Service has
been filed, which are therefore, a public record, and can be released, and
including a time frame (start/end dates, for example: January 1, 2012
through the present).

2. Once the Sixth Judicial District Court and Magistrate Court
Division receive the reformatted request, each Court’s separate location in
Silver City, Deming, Bayard and Lordsburg), will:

a. Review your revised request for accuracy, and will inform you
through email of the total number of pages, including the amount of postage
you will be required to pay before records are released and mailed to you
(from each court location in Silver City, Deming, Bayard and Lordsburg).

Dear Lucy Parsons Labs,

The Fifth Judicial District Court (FJDC) is in receipt of your public
records request forwarded by the State of New Mexico Administrative Office
of the Courts and received by Fifth Judicial District Court on November 21,
2019. Citing the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act (IPRA), NMSA
1978, § 14-2-1 et seq., you have requested the following records:

*“To Whom It May Concern:*

*Pursuant to the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, I hereby
request the following records:*

*For all search warrants, applications for search warrants, cancellations,
and authorization for search warrants between 2012 to the date of
processing this request, please provide the following points of record for
each:*

*Full Name of requester*

*If arrest, arrest ID (eg some cities/states use, "Incident Report")*

*Reason(s) for search warrant (typically either hand-written, or
checkboxes)*

*Badge ID (or similar) of requester*

*District/Unit*

*Name of Judge*

*Name of approving officer*

*Whether an Arrest happened*

*Requested location of search warrant*

*Location of search warrant execution*

*Type of search warrant*

*Statements used to justify search warrant*

*Time and date when search warrant was submitted for approval*

*Time and date when search warrant was executed*

*Whether anything was seized*

*Whether anything was found*

*License plate of vehicle (if relevant)*

*Race of person fr search warrant*

*Age of person for search warrant*

*State of person for search warrant*

*Whether an informant was involved*

*Method of contact with informant leading to search warrant (eg, phone
call, mail, fax, email, etc)*

*Description of person search warrant executed on*

*Legal code of violation*

*Description of violation*

*Date of violation*

*If search warrant related to debt: name of company debt is owed to, amount
owed*

*Whether FBI involved*

*ID associated with FBI document (eg, IR #)*

*Whether search warrant was cancelled*

*Whether contraband found*

*Whether narcotics found*

*The records responsive to this request are likely available in a database,
or in some query-able format. If your department or agency does not have
direct access to the records, please raise to the respective department
that can run queries directly (eg, through SQL).*

*Should your agency not have all of the requested records within a single
record or document, please provide me the relevant documents that do, even
if that requires more than one class of document. Should some of the
records be unavailable, please let me know ahead of time so that we can
narrow the request accordingly.*

*As the records responsive to this request are imperative for understanding
how search warrants are executed, I ask that the public interest of these
records be evaluated to the extent that the public's interest outweighs
this request's burden. To add, this request is being sent to the largest
city of every state and will be collated together to create a comprehensive
map of search warrants throughout the US. As such, the records are not only
important for understanding search warrants at a local level, but also at a
national and state-wide level.*

*Please ensure that provided documents comply with Section 508, as these
records will be shared with members of the public who are covered under the
ADA. This guide should be helpful:
https://www.hhs.gov/web/section-508/making-files-accessible/checklist/pdf/index.html
<https://www.hhs.gov/web/section-508/making-files-accessible/checklist/pdf/index.html>*

*If this request was sent to the wrong department or agency, please let me
know so that I can send to the correct place.*

*The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and
this request is not being made for commercial purposes.*

*In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform
me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer
the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or
CD-ROM if not.*

*Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I
look forward to receiving your response to this request within 15 business
days, as the statute requires.*

*Sincerely,*

*Lucy Parsons Labs”*

*FIFTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT RESPONSE*: It is the policy of the Fifth Judicial
District Court to be fully responsive to requests for public records
available under the Inspection of Public Records Act, NMSA 1978, § 14-2-1
et seq. ("IPRA"). The Inspection of Public Records Act provides the public
with the right to access government records. IPRA requires government
agencies to allow the inspection of existing records. Your request appears
to be seeking bulk data relating to search warrants. The New Mexico IPRA
does not impose a duty on state agencies to create records that do not
already exist.

The Fifth Judicial District Court uses the Odyssey electronic case
management system for docketing and case management purposes. Please be
advised that the Odyssey Case Management system is not utilized to capture
and report the specific data you requested regarding search warrants. The
Court does not maintain or run reports that would routinely gather and
produce the data you requested. The provisions of IPRA do not require a
governmental body to create documents, lists, spreadsheets, statistics or
other reports in order to respond to a records request. See NMSA 1978,
§14-2-8(B) (Nothing in the Inspection of Public Records Act shall be
construed to require a public body to create a public record.) The data
points you have requested would need to be manually extracted out of tens
of thousands of pages of records, and compiled into reports that currently
do not exist. As noted above, IPRA does not require an agency to create a
report that does not exist.

The search warrant records are available for inspection during regular
business hours at each individual court facility.

District Court search warrant documents are available for the years 2012
through present. Magistrate Court search warrant documents are available
for 2017 (limited) and 2018 to present.

Please see the list below for courts in the 5th Judicial District,
addresses, hours of operation, and copy fees. Once the records have been
identified, if you wish to purchase copies, the clerk will review the
documents and ensure they do not fall within the “Limitations on public
access” identified in NMRA 5-123 (C). If records or portions of records
fall within the limitations on public access, the information will be
redacted before the document can be obtained.

The Fifth Judicial District Court does not have custody or control of
arrest records or data. See Rule 5- 211 NMRA, Search Warrants (Search
warrants may only be executed by "*a full-time salaried state or county law
enforcement officer, a municipal police officer, a campus security officer,
an Indian tribal or pueblo law enforcement officer, or a civil officer of
the United States authorized to enforce or assist in enforcing any federal
law.*"). Public records requests seeking law enforcement records,
statistics or reports should be requested directly through the law
enforcement agency who handled the criminal investigation.

The attached Inspection of Public Records Act request (IPRA) was forwarded to us on December 5, 2019 and was received by our office yesterday, December 10, 2019. After review of the request I have the following responses:

2). To the best of our knowledge the McKinley County Sheriff's Office has not filed any search warrants in the 11th Judicial District Court (Farmington NM) from 2012 to present.
