Safe City Project

Community Policing requires partnerships to prevent crime & solve public safety issues.

Due of the breadth of crime being committed by offenders, it is important for the criminal justice system and community partners to work together to develop new, innovative ways to combat criminal activity.

As a result, the Albuquerque Police Department (APD) has established "Community Oriented Notification Network Enforcement Communication Technology" more commonly referred to as CONNECT. This technology allows law enforcement and community partners to communicate about criminal activity impacting businesses on a real time basis.

These partnerships enable the APD to expand its law enforcement capability by eliciting support from community partners. With increased community involvement, we can identify public safety issues and work together to develop an appropriate plan to address community concerns.
