APD Continues Increased Presence in Response to Conflict in Israel, Gaza

Public Safety Message
October 12, 2023

ALBUQUERQUE – In light of recent events in Israel and Gaza, the Albuquerque Police Department will be taking extra proactive measures to ensure the safety of our community.

The department has been, and will continue to work with local religious institutions and community members, and is focused on a visible presence throughout the city. We are working with our partners to stay informed and have sent a safety briefing to officers so they can be prepared for any situation that may arise.

At this time there is no direct threat to residents or guests locally, but APD is closely monitoring the situation both internationally and here in Albuquerque to keep our community safe.
