Mayor Tim Keller and City officials give an update on the incidents at a protest in Old Town Monday night.

06/16/2020

The police report from last night is only preliminary. Since that time detectives have been in close contact with prosecutors to ensure they have all information as we learn it, including video and witnesses’ accounts of the shooter's actions. If you have information call 242-COPS.

06/16/2020

Message from APD Chief Michael Geier: “We are receiving reports about vigilante groups possibly instigating this violence. If this is true will be holding them accountable to the fullest extent of the law, including federal hate group designation and prosecution.”

UPDATE: The incident at Tiguex Park has ended peacefully and APD's Emergency Response Teams are leaving the Old Town area. The FBI is currently assisting APD violent crime investigators as they interview individuals who are involved in the shooting. The investigation is in the preliminary stages. We do not expect additional statements tonight. The victim is reported to be in critical but stable condition.

Mayor Tim Keller and City leaders will announce a major advancement in the City’s approach to community safety.

Today, we’re announcing a first of its kind concept for our city – a civilian public safety branch to dispatch trained professionals to calls on mental health, addiction and homelessness. This new cabinet-level department will take armed police officers out of these situations and keep their focus on violent crime.

APD Chief Geier joined members of the Major Cities Chiefs Association in releasing a statement denouncing the actions of the Minneapolis police officers who took the life of George Floyd. The Major Cities Chiefs Association is comprised of over 70 member cities across the country, who stated that the death of George Floyd was, by any measure of professional policing unnecessary, avoidable and criminal.
Leaders from some of the largest law enforcement organizations in the United States and Canada, including APD, put out the following statement which says in part:
We must be honest about our history and ask ourselves tough questions before we are able to offer the right answers. A history dating back over two centuries that has included institutional racism and more recently, a history that during the civil rights movement over 50 years ago, included injustices and police brutality against African Americans who were fighting for equal rights and equal protections. We need to hear what America is telling us right now and we need to take bold and courageous action to change the narrative of our history as it relates to the disparate impact and outcomes that policing has had - and continues to have - on African Americans, people of color and the disenfranchised.
Chief Geier has continued to support the community in voicing their frustrations and sorrows about racial injustice. Chief Geier said, “We hear you, we are listening and we must do better.”

The Chiefs’ letter also calls for accountability as a cornerstone of reform. The Department of Justice stepped in five years ago to oversee APD and under the Keller administration, the reform effort was finally embraced and that work continues today. APD has implemented dozens of the changes required by the consent decree, focused on community policing, created a dedicated compliance bureau, reformed internal investigations, and overhauled use of force policies. The department is also implementing anti-racism training and participating in diversion programs. APD’s peer-to-peer ethical training means no officer believes it’s acceptable to stand by while another officer harms someone, as seen in Minneapolis.

“We just started down the long road of equality, inclusion and reform a few years ago,” Mayor Tim Keller . “This kind of commitment to change from our APD leadership is an important part of making sure we all work together to see this through in lasting, meaningful ways.”

APD Open Space Unit joined with @abqfirerescue , Corrales Fire , Rio Rancho Fire and the State Forest Service to remove a large tree protruding into the Rio Grande River. The tree has trapped several rafters in its limbs, resulting in numerous river rescue calls over the past week. One in which was near fatal. Utilizing the Open Space air boat, teams worked together to remove the twenty foot long section of tree that has been the cause of so many problems. Due to the great relationships between all involved agencies, the Rio Grande River is a much safer place for the community to enjoy.

APD officers have been working long hours lately ensuring the safety of our community. We are grateful for the support of our community which has been displayed in so many ways.
The FBI Albuquerque Citizens Academy Alumni Association created the Rapid Response Team to assist in providing local law enforcement with food and water, while responding to the ongoing protests. They partnered with the APD and BCSO Citizens Police Academy Alumni Associations and have provided almost 600 meals to officers as well as water and snacks. In addition, Troop 10443 from the NM Girl Scouts provided cookies as dessert.
Thank you for your support!

We understand and respect the desire for many in our community to peacefully protest. As a police department, we want to protect people so they can safely carry out their Constitutional rights and express their opinions. In order to keep the community safe, it is also our duty to monitor large gatherings and uphold the law. Our goal is to support peaceful protests, including those scheduled this afternoon and tomorrow. We ask for everyone to also be cognizant of our safety mission and discourage illegal activity, violence and damage to property.

Open space officers were on patrol in the bosque near the zoo when they smelled smoke. An apd airplane flew over and found a small fire burning. Officers quickly used fire extinguishers and called Albuquerque Fire Rescue in before it was able to spread. Officers would like to remind the public about the dry conditions in the bosque. All open flames such as cigarettes , grills , campfires and fireworks are illegal in open space. Officers have seen an increase in brush fires this year. With the large amount of visitors they are asking for help and report anything suspicious.
