To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:
1. the total number of use of force incidents, separated by year and by type of force used from 2016-2019 (for example, "27 taser incidents in 2016, 3 baton incidents in 2017, etc.)
2. the total number of civilian complaints alleging any form of law enforcement misconduct that were reported and the total number sustained, separated by year (for example, 8 complaints in 2016, 2 complaints sustained in 2017, 4 complaints in 2018, 1 complaint sustained in 2019, etc.)
3. the total number of civilian complaints alleging law enforcement use of excessive force that were reported and the total number sustained from 2016-2019, separated by year
4. the total number of civilian complaints alleging biased policing or racial profiling that were reported and the total number sustained from 2016-2019, separated by year
Note that my requests for civilian complaints are specifically for civilian complaints alleging police misconduct, please do not include complaints filed by one officer/the department against another officer.
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.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act request, copied below, and originally submitted on July 5, 2020. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
I am asking our Internal Affairs department for the numbers. Unfortunately your request came in during a period we were changing over to a new request system and it got lost in the transition. Please send your future requests via: https://cityofsantafenm.nextrequest.com

Please find attached our annual reports for the years requested. They show complaints the Santa Fe Police Department has addressed. The Annual Reports do not break down the incidents as to the type of force used as we do not keep a list of that for our own records.
There are no responsive documents, 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.
