Mayoral Candidate Gus Pedrotty Releases Crime-Fighting Plan

Mayoral Candidate Gus Pedrotty Releases Crime-Fighting Plan

Pedrotty's anti-crime plan calls for new management at APD, changing the way police officers are trained, and taking Internal Affairs out of the department.

Mayoral candidate Gus Pedrotty has released an anti-crime plan that calls for a new management team at the Albuquerque Police Department, changing the way officers are trained, and taking Internal Affairs out of the police department.

Pedrotty’s plan, which was summarized in a video he released, also calls for reinstating longevity pay for officers and creating a department of public safety in the city.

Pedrotty calls his plan a service-based model that will also try to hit at the roots of crime: homelessness, poverty and drug addiction.

Police officers, Pedrotty said, should be role models for the communities they serve, and making them so would be key to his community policing effort.
