ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Albuquerque’s former controversial police chief has landed a new job. Ray Schultz is now the assistant chief for Memorial Villages Police Department, a town of about 80,000 outside Houston.

His online bio says he’s a strong proponent for community policing.

Schultz retired from APD in 2013 while the Department of Justice investigated a string of police shootings and allegations officers abused their power.

In addition to retirement benefits, the city of Albuquerque paid Schultz $99,000 in unused sick and vacation time. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
