ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — KOB 4 has taken an in-depth look at Albuquerque's crime crisis this past month.
After examining the challenges for police, the concerns within the courts and the obstacles to get comprehensive laws passed – KOB 4 took nearly all of those issues to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. The governor revealed bold plans that would make public safety a priority in the next legislative session, and she didn't rule out calling a special session to get the job done.
Gov. Lujan Grisham also revealed her plan for $100 million dollars to hire a thousand more officers statewide and talked about increasing penalties for some of the state's most violent offenders. She also addressed New Mexico's controversial bail system.
