Crime rates in Albuquerque have long been a metropolitan issue, but affect the business environment statewide. The Albuquerque Journal points out just how jarring the stats are with a headline that reads “In Bernalillo County: 114 people shot in 112 days.” While the crime rate is lower in other parts of our state, these types of headlines impact the view of our state and whether or not businesses choose to relocate or open here.
