What you get when they don't want you to know
In early December, ABQ Free Press filed an Inspection of Public Records Act request with the New Mexico Department of Public Safety for documents relating to Jessica Tyler, the embattled head of the Albuquerque Police Department’s training academy.
ABQ Free Press sought the LEA 90 form that the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office had filed against Tyler seeking to revoke Tyler’s law enforcement certification. What we got on Dec. 10 was a two-page cover form for the LEA 90 and 11 totally black pages containing the allegations against Tyler. DPS said it redacted the entire document because it contained information about disciplinary actions and personnel evaluations.
DPS charged us $4. We probably used that much in toner.
