Councilor proposes no more raises for APD until reform ends

Albuquerque Police Department

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Higher-ups at the Albuquerque Police Department could lose out on pay raises until the department meets all of its court-ordered DOJ reforms.

Councilor Diane Gibson is proposed that the city stops giving APD command staff raises unless the department is compliant with the deadline requirements of the DOJ-APD settlement agreement.

Independent monitor Dr. James Ginger says the city’s progress has been delayed because officials are slow to make policy changes.
