Community Petition: Downtown Safety Measures – Police District

We, the community (undersigned) of the downtown corridor, of the city of Albuquerque petition the city to establish a Downtown Police District as campaigned on by current Mayor Tim Keller.

We are vested in the well being and economic vitality of the Downtown community.

We request immediate prioritization in policing our downtown corridor. Promote economic development & revitalization of downtown Albuquerque

We understand with population and economic growth, comes all concerns that currently exist in this area (downtown corridor of the city of Albuquerque, NM), to a much higher degree.

We expect prioritization in policing our district given the potential developmental opportunities in this high growth area, and even greater the potential economic drive a designated police district will stimulate within every district of the city of Albuquerque.

It will re-establish the trust of our businesses, threatening to leave our corridor due to the heavy crime rate and property vandalism, in APD and bring a new image of positivism to our community as a whole, all the potential tourist population, and the 45,000-50,000 daily commuters to this area.

A vibrant city starts with a vibrant downtown!
