29 Mar Manuel Gonzales
Manuel Gonzales is serving his second term as our Bernalillo County Sheriff. He has announced he is considering a run for Mayor of Albuquerque this year. In June 2020, the President began deploying federal law enforcement to select cities in the United States in response to rioting and monument removals amid the George Floyd protests. Federal law enforcement was deployed under Operation Legend, Operation Diligent Valor, and the Protecting American Communities Task Force (PACT). Sheriff Gonzales refused to politicize the Federal Government’s help, and his cooperation with the FBI, Homeland Security, and the U.S. Marshalls Office resulted in a reduction in crime in New Mexico.
