ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Management at some Albuquerque apartment complexes offer perks including free rent to keep a patrol car in their lots.

KOB-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Ksel2Z ) that Albuquerque Police Department spokeswoman Celina Espinoza says officers are encouraged to park their cars in visible locations when off duty to help deter crime and that sometimes apartments will forgo the price of rent to keep the petty crime deterrent at the complex.

To get free rent for parking, officers have to get the agreement approved through the chief and resubmit for approval each year. Overall, the tradeoff is allowed with the department on a case-by-case basis.
