Domestic Violence Initiative for Albuquerque

THERE’S A NEW EFFORT UNDERWAY IN ABQ TO COMBAT DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. MAYOR TIM KELLER HAS SIGNED AN EXECUTIVE ORDER CREATING A TASK FORCE, BRINGING TOGETHER LAW ENFORCEMENT, THE CITY’S DEPARTMENT OF FAMILY AND COMMUNITY SERVICES, THE STATE C-Y-F-D AND OTHER ENTITIES. THE GOAL IS TO DEVELOP RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ACTIONS THE CITY CAN TAKE TO FILL THE GAPS IN ADDRESSING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.

LAST YEAR, 20 PERCENT OF HOMICIDES IN ABQ WERE RELATED TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE.
