DOJ seeks public input on APD reforms

Department of Justice

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A week after the Department of Justice released its findings on their investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department, the DOJ has now announced that they are looking for public input into APD reforms.

The DOJ said the police department belongs to the community it serves and that community involvement is critical to achieving future goals and ensure that any agreements reached properly reflect the communities that make up Albuquerque.

With that in mind the DOJ is organizing public meetings scheduled for the week of April 28th 2014. At these meetings DOJ representatives will meet with community representatives such as civic groups, advocacy groups, victims and police officers and the police union.

Further details of these meetings are expected to be released throughout the week.

If you and your group wish to schedule a meeting with the DOJ representatives you can contact the community hotline at 1-877-218-5228 or through email at

The DOJ would also like to remind those wanting to voice their opinions that they do not have to wait until the April 28th meetings. You can contact the community hotline at any time.
