DWI Vehicle Forfeiture

SFPD DWI Forfeiture

Google Translate Espanol

In 2009 the Santa Fe Police Department along with the City of Santa Fe implemented Ordinance 24-9 to reduce habitual DWI (“Driving While under the Influence of intoxicating liquor and/or drugs”) offenders. In turn, police began seizing and impounding vehicles deemed a public nuisance.

The Santa Fe Police Department currently seizes vehicles on the first or subsequent offense for DWI, and for driving while license is revoked due to a prior DWI arrest or conviction.

If a vehicle is seized for a DWI or a revoked license, the owner must follow the instructions given on the DWI Vehicle Seizure form.  To schedule an appointment for removal of personal items, for vehicle removal, or to request a hearing, call (505) 955-5042.
