The City of Albuquerque has developed and passed an ordinance that puts in place a comprehensive anti-gang strategy for Albuquerque.
This measure will give law enforcement the tools they need to fight the scourge of gang violence by defining criminal gang membership and prohibiting it in the City of Albuquerque. The strategy also requires the Albuquerque Police Department maintain a registry of convicted known gang members and make that registry accessible on this website.
The City of Albuquerque's decision to post gang members on this website is based on the fact that the gang member was convicted under the Anti-Gang Ordinance. The City of Albuquerque has not assessed the specific risk posed by any particular individual and has made no determination regarding the current dangerousness or degree of dangerousness of any individual or class of individuals. The main purpose of providing this data on the Internet is to make the information more easily available and accessible, not to warn about any specific individual.
The site provides information to the public concerning the identity of gang members within the Albuquerque Metropolitan area. This site is not intended to supplant the community notification process, but rather, it allows the criminal justice community to promote public awareness concerning the potential threat that gang members pose to City of Albuquerque citizens.
Recognizing that it is impossible to notify every citizen about a gang member's presence in their community, this site will enable you to obtain information and take the necessary precautions. Providing the public with information regarding convicted gang members is a crucial step towards encouraging the public to protect themselves from potential future acts.
