Information about Field and Administrative positions and applying to ACS

Why join ACS?

Community Safety is a quickly growing department within the city of Albuquerque. Many 9-1-1 calls don’t require a gun and a badge; they require individuals like social workers and community health workers who can assess a situation and connect someone to services that can potentially save their life. Become a part of our multi-faceted approach to addressing the mental and behavioral health needs of the city you love.

ACS has Field and Administrative positions available.

Apply Now

We are looking for people who have lived experience as well as backgrounds in social work, counseling, community health, peer support, and other social services. Most importantly, we are looking for people who care about their community, who see someone in need and jump into action to help.

ACS offers full-time city positions with competitive salaries, full benefits packages, and educational incentives.

“To help people who are often overlooked or forgotten, who don’t have anyone they can count on or talk to for support; to guide someone through what may be the toughest day of their life. I want to bridge the gaps within a broken system; to support the community in whatever way possible.”

-BHR Supervisor Walter Adams on why he became a Behavioral Health Responder
