The Community Oriented Notification Network Enforcement Communication Technology or CONNECT, is an interactive tool which links law enforcement to community partners to communicate about crime and public safety issues occurring in Albuquerque. 

 Join Albuquerque's "crime fighting" community

CONNECT operates like a business "crime watch" that allows stakeholders to communicate about criminal activity impacting their businesses on a real time basis. Community partners use the system to alert each other about criminal incidents impacting their business or geographic area, in an effort to prevent other partners from being victimized.

Community partnerships help police prevent crime

CONNECT provides a means for law enforcement agencies to engage community partners/stakeholders in a public safety partnership. Every jurisdiction has business partners who want to help address crime in their community, but do not have a venue for proactive engagement.  Community partnerships help police expand their ability to fight crime proactively.  

With CONNECT, members become additional eyes and ears for crime prevention, helping to minimize crime.

The Public Safety ECHO Project is the world's first-of-its-kind effort to use the ECHO model to address safety issues by bringing residents, workers, and businesses together in an online, social and professional space to share skills, increase knowledge, and solve problems. It’s innovative because it taps into the community’s wisdom to find safety solutions, applying the Project ECHO "All teach, all learn," multidisciplinary approach to finding best practices. It is part of the city's strategy to tackle crime from all sides. Get the details at
