  • Q: How can I get a copy of a police report I did
    By Lorre
    Mar 23, 2016

    Police reports are considered public records and are requested routinely from the department directly. In certain cases they can be difficult to obtain from the police if they're reluctant to provide it. If the case was filed, it will sometimes contain the police/incident report. The case file can be requested from the court records division. There's a public case search from the New Mexico's judiciary web pages that can help you get case number, court venue and other case information.

  • Q: How can I find out if I have a warrant?
    By Joe
    Jun 28, 2016

    It can depend on the type of warrant. For example, generally the local law enforcement departments such as Bernalillo County sheriffs offer an instant access to warrants published online. However, the state also publishes Child Support Bench Warrants, a program which began in July 2011. There are only 33 counties in NM, you may have to look into them individually if you're not sure where the warrant is out of. The motor vehicle department's website mentions that they do not publish warrants for public view.
