As we near the holiday season, we are taking time to reflect on our community and the things we cherish most about Albuquerque. From supporting small local businesses while you’re gift shopping to attending some of our traditional events like the Twinkle Light Parade and River of Lights, there are so many ways to celebrate our city in the coming months.
Speaking of the next few months, we are also preparing for the next legislative session where we will join other leaders across the city and state to promote our second round of the Metro Crime Initiative (MCI). These new policies are geared towards fighting gun violence, retail crime, and the fentanyl crisis as well as boosting officer retention and supporting victims of violent crime. Whether it was expanding our Violence Intervention Program or helping our officers crack down on auto theft ‘chop shops,’ MCI has been instrumental in getting every level of the criminal justice system to take responsibility for the real change that will make our city safer. We know the journey isn’t over, but we have our sights set on a successful legislative session that brings results for Burqueños and our neighbors around the state.
We are better together and we strive to keep this spirit not just during the holidays, but also in our everyday work. We wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.
