ALBUQUERQUE – The Albuquerque Police Department has launched a new evidence portal to better assist the Real Time Crime Center and the Emergency Communications Center while the public reports crimes in progress.

As an individual places a call to 911 and officers are in the process of being dispatched, this new option, called the Community Supporting Investigations Portal, allows the public to upload video/photographic evidence as officers are responding. This will only be offered in emergent situations; non-emergent video evidence will be collected while officers take reports.

“As a department we continue to see our investigations move into a digital era, and video and photographic evidence is crucial to catching perpetrators in our community,” said Chief Harold Medina. “By allowing the public to provide real time evidence as crimes are in progress, it can only better assist our officers catch these offenders in a timely manner.”  

Emergency Communications Center operators can provide an email address to callers that believe they have images or video that can immediately assist officers during their response. The operators will inform the caller to send the evidence to the email address provided at [email protected] which will send an automatic reply to the caller with additional direction to access the portal.

From the submission, the Real Time Crime Center will be alerted and will access Evidence.com and monitor the Community Supporting Investigations Portal. RTCC personnel will determine if that information provided will assist field officers with their investigation and for their situational awareness.
