d. All of the above


1) C. People who leave their pets outdoors overnight without a large enough shelter to allow the animal to walk in a circle are subject to a potential $300 fine or 90 days in jail. About 12 calls a day come in to Animal Control regarding animals neglected in colder weather.

The Albuquerque Police Department ranked 13th in pay for officers after one year of academy completion, 15th for officers with 10 years of experience and 15th for pay above median household income. According to the survey, officers in Farmington get $44,512 one year out of the academy. Officers in Hobbs make $43,888, and officers in Los Alamos see $42,500. Albuquerque police receive $39,520.
