Albuquerque Safe Harbor

Albuquerque, Nm (KKOB)  —   Albuquerque City Council has approved a proposal by Councilor Pat Davis directing APD to create a victim “Safe Harbor”.

The proposal provides a way for victims of domestic violence or sexual assault to be able to report their abuse without fear of being arrested on unrelated issues like misdemeanor charges or outstanding warrants.

Davis says other cities have had success with the same kind of program.

Under the proposal APD will have to collaborate with criminal justice partners to create the policy.
