Albuquerque –

Early this evening we learned of a disturbance We have learned that the children inside the juvenile detention center are rioting and making demands of staff. APD is on scene and we are trying to learn more about what exactly the kids are protesting.

While on scene we observed multiple police agencies at the facility. We learned 3 juveniles were taken to Presbyterian for medical attention. Kids inside the facility were calling parents on the outside of the facility as the incident was unfolding. Some parents were gathered outside across the street worried about their children and oncerned about why no one had notified them about what was going on inside.

A Bernalillo County Sheriff spokesman Deputy Tyler Lapierre sent a statement that read:

As of 2050 hours, control and operational oversight have been reinstated to the dedicated staff at the facility, and we are pleased to report that the situation has been thoroughly addressed with no outstanding concerns.


We extend our appreciation for the swift and coordinated efforts of all involved parties, ensuring the safety and security of the facility. 

We have been told by a source that kids are making claims of being mistreated and even abused by staff members. The staff are also allegedly very short staffed making things more complicated. We are following this story closely and will update when we have more info.
