Former APD chief comments on DOJ report

Former ABQ mayor, police chief dodge DOJ questions

 

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Many of APD’s problems started under former Mayor Martin Chavez and former Chief Ray Schultz.

In a brief statement Thursday Schultz said he hasn’t read the report yet, but APD has the same goal as the community to reduce and eliminate deadly force encounters.

Chavez turned down our request for comment.

It was during his administration that hiring standards were relaxed in the big push to get more officers on the street.
