But Eden told USA Today that police union contracts make it difficult to enforce retroactive discipline within bounds of a union contract, stating "Yes, we may be stuck with them."
Today Albuquerque Police Officers Association President Stephanie Lopez told KOAT that she initially felt disappointed and angered that Eden would represent officers in this light. But Lopez and Eden have since talked and are now on the same page.
