COVID-19 Video Update #10 – Bernalillo County District Attorney Raúl Torrez

From time to time during the COVID-19 public health emergency, we will be sending video messages from community leaders that provide Albuquerque-area businesses with information, perspectives, and updates about the spread of the virus, mitigation strategies, directives, and resources.

Please take a moment to watch the video below from Raúl Torrez, Bernalillo County District Attorney and one of the Chamber’s key partners in local government. In response to a request from Chamber President and CEO Terri Cole to update Chamber investors on the latest developments from his office, D.A. Torrez discusses what his office is doing in response to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on violent crime in general, domestic violence, and the justice system in Albuquerque. This video reflects information available as of Monday, April 20th; this health emergency and the responses to it continue to rapidly evolve.

The Chamber extends our sincere appreciation to D.A. Torrez for taking the time to update us today, and our thanks to all those working hard to keep Albuquerque safe.
