ALBUQUERQUE ⁠— The New Mexico Law Offices of the Public Defender today formally calls on 2nd District Attorney Raúl Torrez to join in demanding Bernalillo County Sheriff Manny Gonzales mandate body cameras for his deputies. In the event that the sheriff refuses, we call on Torrez to decline to prosecute certain Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office cases until Sheriff Gonzalez accepts accountability and transparency.
