Traffic Light Scorecard

"Residents, businesses and public safety agencies work together for a safe community"

Our Conclusion:


Based on the Following criteria:

Local Trend is MIXED
Albuquerque, compared to others, is MIXED
Citizen perception compared to data MATCHES

Local Trend LOCAL TREND:

Albuquerque's Community Policing emphasis has increased over time; however, specific data is not available to support any conclusions about a local trend. Albuquerque residents' overall rating of quality of life in their neighborhoods increased between 1999-2003, then dropped in 2005. The percentage of those rating quality of life in their neighborhood as excellent or good returned to its higher level in 2007. The perceptions of citizens of their own neighborhoods are mixed, with some improving and some in decline, although the overall average is up slightly for 2007.


Albuquerque has implemented Community Policing practices, and is similar to most of the peer Southwest cities participating in the ICMA's Comparative Performance Measurement data report. Comparable data for citizen perceptions of neighborhood quality of life are not available.

Citizen Perception CITIZEN PERCEPTION:

Albuquerque citizens rated this Desired Community Condition as being very important. Citizens listed this condition as one in which progress has been made. Citizens in certain neighborhoods ranked this condition as being more important than did citizens in other neighborhoods. The relationship between the citizens' neighborhood and the perception of importance was true to a statistically significant degree.
