ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - The views from Pat Hurley Park are gorgeous, a nice view of the Duke City looking toward the Sandias.
But as serene as it can feel during the day, at night things can get rough.
"After it gets dark we've always had different types of incidents occurring at the park ," said Commander Harvey Medina. "Everything ranging from homicides to simple vandalism cases."
There have been a long list of shootings at Pat Hurley Park in recent years, with the most recent one happening at the end of April. In October, an 89-year old woman was car jacked outside of the park.
"We have made a huge investment in this park for the community and for the city at large," said city councilor Ken Sanchez. "People from all over the city should come down to Pat Hurley Park but they're afraid to."
So the park is getting a little extra help.
Wednesday, APD set up its mobile trailer camera at Pat Hurley Park. It'll be in place for the next few days to serve as an extra set of eyes on the park. APD can remotely view the camera 24 hours a day from its Real-time Crime Center.
"It's like having a police officer at the park 24/7, which is needed," Sanchez said.
Sanchez says he's going to push for a $45,000 permanent camera at Pat Hurley Park.
Pat Hurley Neighborhood Association president Joan Jones likes that idea.
"If you're being watched, you're not likely to get into so much, you're going to stay away," Jones said.
APD currently has more than 200 cameras around the city that they can access from their crime center, including about 100 traffic cameras and other surveillance cameras located at participating businesses.
They say it only has video for most of the cameras for 24 hours.
