ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Doctor James Ginger, the man hired to oversee reforms within Albuquerque police, had cautioned we might not see changes in the department’s use of force practices anytime soon.
During the Albuquerque City Council meeting Monday night, Ginger said it would take a few more sessions to create a new use of force policy.
Last month in a public meeting, he praised APD for using more restraint. He said although the number of SWAT calls was up from last year, none of them resulted in death.
On Monday, Ginger said he believes a new use of force policy will be finished early next year.
