The Albuquerque FBI Division and the U.S. Attorney’s Office are working with federal, state and local partners to prepare for any potential violence in New Mexico related to the recent unrest in Washington, D.C., and the upcoming presidential inauguration.
The FBI has set up a command post to monitor any emerging threats in our region and share intelligence with our partners.
FBI assets are on standby to support investigations and respond to any potential threats of violence to the state capitol, federal buildings and other key facilities.
“Our focus is not on peaceful protesters, but on those individuals who may want to incite violence and engage in criminal activity,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge James Langenberg. “The public can help by contacting us if they are aware of anyone planning to commit acts of violence or damage to government buildings.”
“While we will protect and defend the peaceful exercise of free speech, we will not tolerate violence, wanton disregard for the law, or incitement to criminal activity. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Mexico is working closely with the FBI and our other federal law enforcement partners and we are prepared to act if there is a nexus to our jurisdiction that warrants federal charges,” Acting U.S. Attorney Fred Federici said.
The FBI’s main number is (505) 889-1300.
The FBI also continues to seek information that will assist in identifying individuals who engaged in violence Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol building and surrounding area.
