Independent monitor says Albuquerque police officials finished 1st phase of reforms

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The independent monitor overseeing changes for the troubled Albuquerque Police Department says officials have gotten through the first phase of reforms.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, James Ginger says the court has approved 36 of 37 policies and he has already given initial approval for a final policy.

After this, the reform effort will move forward by training officers and future cadets.

Ginger is inviting the public to learn more about the reform efforts and how they can help at a new office.
