Who We Are

APD Forward is a community coalition led by concerned Albuquerque citizens who want to see the Albuquerque Police Department become the responsible, community-friendly police department we know it can be.

We are a powerful advocacy, outreach, and education platform for Albuquerque communities to press for the sensible reforms that we need to restore trust in the police department.
