Albuquerque Police Monitor updates public

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Thursday evening Albuquerque Police met with the man in charge of fixing the department.

It’s the second public meeting held by monitor, Dr. James Ginger.

Ginger and his team, were at the Sheraton on Louisiana, to provide updates on APD’s progress in addressing use-of-force training for officers.

He says there are some encouraging signs. For instance, even though SWAT calls were up from last year, there were no deaths as a result of them.

The City Council voted to award Ginger a four year, $4.5 million contract to overhaul APD.

He will report status updates regularly to a federal judge.
