ABQ Police Department Assistance
High Desert falls within the Albuquerque Police Department’s Foothills Area Command (www.cabq.gov/police/area-commands/foothills-area-command). The Foothills Area Command provides guidance and other services to residents, as listed on their website. In addition, the Albuquerque Police Department has several tip sheets for preventing various types of crimes that are well worth reading (www.cabq.gov/police/crime-prevention-safety).
Albuquerque has a false alarm ordinance, requiring that all alarms must be registered, and an annual permit fee must be paid. Information is available at www.cabq.gov/dfa/treasury/alarm-fees/false-alarms-reduction-program.
Meeting Spot to Exchange Online Goods (Thanks to APD!)
If you make an online deal that requires meeting the buyer or selling in person, you may use the APD Foothills Substation’s Internet Exchange Zone anytime throughout the year. Thes green-outlined parking spots are under 24-hour APD camera surveillance, which can add an extra level of personal safety for you when you meet that online buyer or seller in person. The substation is at 12800 Lomas Blvd NE (between Juan Tabo & Tramway).
