It is truly with a heavy heart and sincere sorrow we must all say our goodbye's to Chief Bob V. Stover, who recently passed.
Our senior Eyes tell us Chief Stover was the BEST Chief of Police the Albuquerque Police Department has had in the past 35 years. We are told Chief Stover was a no nonsense type leader. Stover was not a politician's political appointee and pawn like many others such as Joe Polisar who's wife was related to Marty Chavez; or Gil Gallegos who was only appointed because of his political ties to the FOP; or Ray Schultz who was brought in by Chavez to rescue APD but instead ruined the Department; and recently the newest political appointee, the inepter and incompetent Gordon Eden who was appointed by the same type of incompetence, RJ Berry.
For many of us who have lived in Albuquerque all of our lives we have seen chief's come and go. Only one chief has ever stood out as a real Chief of Police; a real leader; that person was Bob V. Stover. One can only imagine in the ruins of APD being able to say Chief and real Leader in the same sentence; because right now that is impossible.
Our sincere condolences to the Stover and Garcia families. We know what a tragic loss you have suffered.
For the coppers who knew Chief Stover and to all the law enforcement family; you also have our condolences for you will soon hear the Alert Tone. PD to ALL UNITS; 10-3!
