Up one level
Document Actions

Good government is about ensuring that the members of our local communities feel safe and secure on a day to day basis. That’s why public safety is one of the cornerstones of my administration.

During my time in office I have worked hard with Albuquerque Police Chief Ray Schultz and Chief James Breen to lower crime rates, improve response times, and make our city a progressive and innovative place to safely live, work, and play.
