Newly elected Bernalillo County Sheriff John Allen held a meeting with members of the media who outlined some short term and long term goals for the department.
Sheriff Allen highlighted the fact that On Patrol Live TV show was put on hold while he discusses things with his staff and deputies.
“I want to focus on crime, we’re short on the people power we have. I don’t want to be scheduling On Patrol: Live, I know people think that’s access to the department, and some people thing that’s true transparency to the department, I’ll agree and disagree," said Sheriff Allen.
