Officer Involved Shooting Review and Evaluation

Protocol for Review of Officer Involved Shootings:

  • An on-call Assistant District Attorney will attend officer-involved deadly use of force call-outs. The District Attorney's Office then opens a file immediately. 

    Review Process:

    • An experienced, licensed attorney is appointed by the District Attorney to serve as a Special Prosecutor and is sworn in by the District Court. Duties of the Special Prosecutor include:
      • thoroughly reviewing all aspects of the police investigation and requesting additional information from police if necessary;
      • as necessary, seek additional review and analysis from District Attorneys from other jurisdictions within New Mexico;
      • making appropriate contact with all relevant next of kin to give them an opportunity to participate in the review process;
      • reviewing any submissions of additional information from any other sources or any other individuals with relevant information;
      • determining if sufficient admissible evidence exists to meet the criminal law standard of proof at trial—that a jury considering the facts and law of the case would be likely to find beyond a reasonable doubt that the force used by the officer(s) involved was unjustified.

    Completion of Reports: 
    Upon completion of review, the Special Prosecutor issues a report and makes it available to the public. Reports issued since January 1, 2017 are available below.
