The New Mexico Department of Public Safety won’t release e-mails of a former state police chief despite an attorney general’s opinion that they are public record.

The AG’s office says that email are public; and the state’s written policy on information technology says anyone using the email system “shall have no expectation of privacy.” (4/05/06).
