ABQ Transit Standard Operating Procedures Posted

We’ve posted the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) of the Albuquerque Transit Security Guards. Read them now in our “Tools” section.

The Albuquerque Transit Department manages the city’s busses and bus stations. They employ a staff of security guards. These guards are dressed like cops and carry weapons, but they are not police officers. This does not stop them from using force, often illegally, to arrest people. We have obtained their SOPs and are pursuing action against guards with a history of illegal use of force.

When we originally requested this document, security supervisor John Baker (he calls himself “Lieutenant”) refused to release it to us. Of course, we forced him to let us scan the document by means of a simple IPRA demand. Now anyone can read this public record at Police Complaints.
