Albuquerque City Council defers vote on bill to prioritize APD staffing

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – People in the Albuquerque area will have to wait at least another week-and-a-half for the decision on a bill that puts pressure on the mayor to hire more police officers.

Tuesday night, city council deferred the ordinance to the September 18 meeting.

It would require the mayor to make staffing his top priority, meaning proposing sufficient programs and salary levels to the council. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
