The Albuquerque Police Department is in the middle of a reform process after the U.S. Department of Justice found a pattern of excessive use of force by officers. An independent monitor tasked with overseeing the process presented the second of a series of reports earlier this month.

KUNM Call In Show Thu. 11/13 8a: 

The Department of Justice is requiring APD to figure out how to respond to people in mental health crisis with the goal of decreasing the use of force in those situations. The agreement between the DOJ and Albuquerque’s police force also calls for APD to provide crisis intervention training to all officers.
