Albuquerque City Council to vote on contract that could cost millions

Albuquerque City Council

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Albuquerque City Council is expected to decide if the team overseeing reforms at the Albuquerque Police Department should be paid more than $4.5 million.

Federal Monitor Jim Ginger and his team will ensure APD is making the changes spelled out in its agreement with the Department of Justice.

Ginger has picked a four-year, 12-phase reform plan based on what he’s already done in Pittsburgh and New Jersey.
