Crime has become the new pandemic that has surged through our communities in Bernalillo County and the state of New Mexico, in recent years.

Through the politicized narrative of “defund the police” that has been taken and acted upon by the progressive leaders in our state, it has made New Mexico a more violent and dangerous home for us and our families.

Michaela believes in investing additional funds, prior to the egregious “catch and release” movement, in order to recruit and hire additional police officers to keep our streets safe. While at the same time, increasing additional funds invested into cadet recruiting, vetting, and training programs, to create the nation’s leader in police training in the country. Through these initiatives can we combat ramped crime in our streets and keep our communities safe.
