ACLU demands APD undercover video from protest

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The ACLU wants the Albuquerque Police Department to turn over any videos or photos it took at Saturday’s peaceful protest.

News 13 spotted an undercover officer at the protest with a camera pointed at demonstrators.

That officer shot a man a few years ago and currently works for the APD unit that investigates criminals.

The ACLU says unless the department had evidence a crime was being committed at the event the department had no right to gather information on protesters.

They’ve filed a public records request for any surveillance data collected by APD.

Last night the police department said Saturday’s protest was a concern because a previous protest got out of hand.
