Police News Release: Keller Administration Outlines Road Map for Hiring More Officers

ALBUQUERQUE – Today, Mayor Tim Keller’s administration released a strategic road map for hiring more police officers.

“The number of police officers patrolling Albuquerque’s streets and detectives working cases has dropped steadily during the past eight years, while virtually every category of crime has increased to record levels,” Mayor Keller said. “Now it is critical we take action and step up to give our police officers the resources they need to fight crime.”

The staffing plan includes data on crime and the number of police officers in Albuquerque as well as recruitment strategies such as attracting new recruits, lateral transfers and retaining more existing officers.
