APD reopens Triangle Mini-substation in Nob Hill

The Albuquerque Police Department Triangle Substation in Nob Hill will now have regular hours, accepting police reports and working with the community from noon to 10 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.


Local business owners, including Safari Grill Executive Chef Bill Young, say they’re looking forward to it.

“It's great to have more protection in the city especially in this location for the transients and local family and public to just come out and eat,” Young said.

Young says he’s already seen officers in the area, a priority as part of community policing initiatives.

“The staffing for the police is going to be great, we actually have police that have come over and tried cuisine out,” Young said.

New APD Chief Michael Geier says it’s the first of several re-openings, aimed at creating police hubs in neighborhoods across the city.

“It might have made sense from a strictly budget standpoint four years ago to shut these substations down, but today we're going about our business in an entirely different way,” Chief Geier said.
