ALBUQUERQUE – Reforming a vast, complex system of law enforcement will require innovative and proven solutions, a holistic approach and the willingness to change. So far, we’ve seen “reform around the edges” – with individual departments, cities and states tackling elements of police reform.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Albuquerque Community Safety, launched in 2021, responds to the city’s non-violent calls – from welfare checks and mental health crises to shelter space requests. City officials say they have diverted thousands of calls from police.

Law enforcement officers report higher rates of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and suicidal thoughts. Police officials say departments should implement comprehensive officer support programs – and address potential problems before they can “mushroom.”
