APD’s Foothills Substation (12800 Lomas Blvd NE) is still closed to the public during construction. Please go to the APD James Dwyer Substation at 12700 Montgomery Boulevard for assistance. The Dwyer Substation is just east of Tramway across the street from the McDonald’s and Smith’s groceries shopping area and has parking for visitors. Our front office staff is there to assist you Mondays through Fridays, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The phone number is (505) 332-5240. I have an estimated date of Monday, October 16th when the staff will return to the Foothills Substation at 12800 Lomas Blvd NE barring any unexpected issues with the work being done.
We had several firearms reported stolen over the weekend during residential burglaries. There were 9 firearms and a crossbow reported stolen in one residential burglary and multiple firearms stolen during another residential burglary in the Foothills Area Command over the weekend. It is crucial to properly secure your weapons for safety and to prevent theft. Keep a property inventory of your weapons — make, caliber, model, any additional features, the serial number, color, etc. This will help police get stolen firearms into the necessary databases from the police report if stolen and it will help get the firearm back to you in the event it is recovered by law enforcement. There are many types of gun safes on the market and ways to secure your firearms when not being used — please find what safe securing method you want to use to prevent accidents or stolen firearms.
