KUNM Call In Show Thu. 8/7 8a: This spring New Mexicans, and many people across the U.S., were shocked by a video that showed a homeless camper being shot by police who were trying to bring him out of the Albuquerque foothills. While the video sparked controversy over police tactics it also highlighted the ongoing tension between law enforcement agencies, the media and the public. 

How much information about police work should the public be able to see? How can we balance concerns about public safety with the duty of the media to hold those in power accountable for their actions? 

Join us for a conversation about public records and the Albuquerque Police Department.
