Statement on Shootings of Albuquerque Police Officers

ALBUQUERQUE – This week two Albuquerque Police Department officers were shot and seriously injured in the line of duty.  These tragic events underscore the very real dangers that our brave law enforcement officers face every day they are on the job.  It is our great hope that both of these officers will recover fully and that the community will support them and their families during this difficult time.  We owe our courageous law enforcement officers a tremendous debt of gratitude for their service and sacrifices.
