Albuquerque, NM – Attorney General Balderas announced today that the Office of the Attorney General will host school safety trainings in the Española Public Schools on Monday, January 6, 2020. The all day trainings come as part of Attorney General Balderas’ commitment to provide safety training to the schools in the wake of recent controversial events giving rise to student safety concerns.
