ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Albuquerque mayor is getting additional security for his office after protesters recently occupied the building.

KOB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/TrHaT4 ) that new security features have been added around the office suites occupied by Mayor Richard Berry and his staff.

Officials say the changes include a second entry door and electronic features to quickly alert police if there is a break-in.

Chief Administrative Officer Rob Perry says some administrative staff have been fearful for their safety.

Two dozen protesters were able to get past the front security door June 2. The demonstrators sat in a circle and requested to speak with Berry, who was out of state at the time.

Residents have held protests over several fatal shootings involving the city’s police department.
