City Councilors draft new legislation for police oversight

Big crowd anticipated at next city council meeting

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Part of the problem the feds had with civilian oversight was the Police Oversight Commission the group that polices the police.

The DOJ says it has no teeth something the community has been saying for a while now.

The city council appointed a task force to come up with ways to fix that and Friday Councilors Brad Winter and Rey Garduno released a draft of a bill to make most of their recommendations law.

Those include developing a community outreach program that would get public input and allow the POC to investigate citizen complaints against police. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
