Public Records Requests
Santa Fe County is responsibile under the New Mexico Public Records Act and Inspection of Public Records Act to permit the inspection of public records. In order to ensure that the County meets its inspection responsibilities under the Act, the County has designated a Records Custodian for all requests, except those that are provided orally to various others, and oral and written requests seeking public records from the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office.
Santa Fe County accepts public records requests via our online portal here. Records requests may also be mailed to Santa Fe County Attorney's Office, PO Box 276, Santa Fe, NM 87504. Requests for Sheriff's Office records should be directed to that office.
Public records that contain protected health information as defined under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPPA") 42 U.S.C. 1320d et seq. will need a release signed by the patient or authorized individual. The County approved form is located here.
Requests for personnel information that might otherwise be protected may be requested with a signed release by the employee or former employee using the form located here.
For more information, contact Records Custodian Francine Lobato at firstname.lastname@example.org or 505-995-2715.
