ALBUQUERQUE – The Justice Department (DOJ) today announced it has signed a joint statement of principles with the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico, which reflects the good-faith intent of both sides to enter into a court-enforceable agreement to reform the Albuquerque Police Department (APD). The joint statement of principles publicly specifies the measures that DOJ and the City are undertaking in order to resolve the findings resulting from DOJ’s investigation into use of force by APD. On April 10, 2014, following an extensive investigation, DOJ found reasonable cause to believe that APD engages in a pattern or practice of use of excessive force, including unreasonable deadly force.

ALBUQUERQUE – Last week the Department of Justice announced findings that the Albuquerque Police Department has systemic failures that have led to a pattern or practice of unconstitutional use of force, including deadly force. Although these problems are serious and run deep, we have the commitment of the City to work together to bring about meaningful reform within the Albuquerque Police Department.
We have learned that fliers advocating violence against police officers are being disseminated in Albuquerque. The Justice Department condemns threats of violence against police officers, and encourages all sectors of the community to participate in the critical dialogue that will bring about the reform that will promote constitutional policing and will rebuild the community’s trust in its Police Department. The path to reform is through dialogue among the City, the Police and the many communities that make up Albuquerque, and the negotiation and implementation of a court-enforceable agreement.
Individuals who wish to have input into developing the reforms or who have information relevant to the Justice Department’s investigation into the use of force by the Albuquerque Police Department are encouraged to contact us by email at email@example.com or by calling our toll free number, (855) 544-5134, which is available for both English and Spanish speakers.
