Statement: ABQ Police Officers’ Association

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) The following is a statement from the Albuquerque Police Officers’ Association.

We have a great department with great officers who have worked hard to protect and serve the citizens of Albuquerque and will continue to do so on a daily basis.

The Albuquerque Police Officers’ Association is prepared to Work with our community in incorporating the recommendations by the DOJ. We appreciate the changes that the DOJ has recommended and recognize that change is hard for everyone. It takes time to heal the pain in the Communities’ hearts and minds.

Our department looks forward to learning and advancing from the DOJ’s guidance and additional training to make us a better department in the future. We are glad to see that federal funding will be used to assist our lack of services for the mentally ill in this city. We will benefit from any additional training. We look forward to working with the city and community in making this a great city to live in once again and restoring the communities’ faith back in our department.

We as an association are committed to assisting all of our officers’ in this dept. in addressing issues of concern that have been raised and helping them move forward in a positive fashion that is fair to all.

Thank you,
Stephanie Lopez
