ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – CYFD and APD have been heavily criticized for missing opportunities to save Omaree’s life.
Mayor R.J. Berry responded to those failures by creating a Child Abuse Prevention Task Force, which held a public meeting Thursday night.
The task force said the top three areas the community would like to see improvement were in technology, more information sharing between CYFD, police and the DA’s office. They also want more resources for families to get help.
And the third area is updating policies and procedures which APD is now in the process of doing.
APD was called to investigate abuse against Omaree three times and CYFD was called nine times and nothing was done.
