Albuquerque Police Department records custodian suing the city

Enrollment ends today for Jan. 1 health coverage

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The former Albuquerque Police Department records custodian plans to sue the city.

Reynaldo Chavez filed a “notice to sue letter” on Monday. The letter says Chief Gorden Eden ordered him to find ways to deny public record requests from the news, media and members of the public.

Chavez claims he was fired last month because he complained to department officials.

On Tuesday, APD couldn’t respond to the lawsuit.

They did give this statement: “APD carefully evaluates document requests to ensure that it does not release sensitive information, such as social security numbers, documents that are confidential by law, or evidence that could compromise an investigation. APD is committed to transparency and strives to improve how quickly it is able to respond to requests from the public.”
