The competition to land police officers in New Mexico’s largest city is heating up.
Seven Rio Rancho police officers earlier this month announced their resignations and all are expected to join the Albuquerque Police Department.
Including the seven officers who recently resigned, 11 Rio Rancho officers already have left or plan to leave the department and join the ranks of Albuquerque police. Eight of those officers have either graduated or are currently seated in an Albuquerque police academy.
