The community spoke. The Albuquerque Police Department listened. The result: A helpful YouTube video on what to do if you are stopped by a police officer. It can be viewed above.
Another APD-produced video is in the works about what to do if you are a victim of a crime.
The idea for the videos came out of recent community meetings to improve relations between city residents and police. What became clear is that some residents don’t know what to do if they are confronted with either of these situations.
Advice given in the first video dealing with traffic stops should be useful in helping to keep what might be just an unpleasant encounter from escalating.
