Goal 2: Citizens are safe, feel safe and secure, and have trust and shared responsibility for maintaining a safe environment.
Why is this goal important?
When a person thinks of public safety, the Police and Fire departments immediately come to mind. We expect crime rates to be decreasing and fatalities to be low. But the responsibility for a safe Albuquerque is also the responsibility of its citizens. Every day, citizens make decisions with safety in mind. It might be asking a car salesperson about safety ratings before buying a car, or buying our child a cell phone in order to know where they are at all times, or deciding what route to drive on the way home. Safety even includes providing safe homes for our pets.
