Homicides in Albuquerque have soared and will likely double the high rate of 2020. But is crime really out of control? After all, the homicide rate has dramatically increased in most cities during the Pandemic. And what does the data show with regard to other violent crimes and property crimes?
Host Stephen Spitz will put these questions to newly appointed APD Police Chief Harold Medina. Other subjects will include APD’s lack of progress, according to the Court Monitor, on complying with the DOJ’s consent decree, the failure to increase the police force as the City promised, and the impact of the George Floyd protests on policing.
