The Albuquerque Police Department’s progress in dealing with the Department of Justice reform effort has slowed during the past year and a half, according to the latest report by the independent monitor assigned to the case.
In the sixth report by independent monitor James Ginger, released this month, smaller percentage gains were noted in the three categories of compliance – primary, secondary and operational – compared with some of his earlier reports.
City officials counter that the deceleration of progress with reforms has mirrored a deteriorating relationship between the city and Ginger, adding that a lack of feedback from the monitor has slowed the reform effort.
Claim of monitor bias
City officials filed a motion last week arguing that Ginger is biased against them and asking Brack to conduct a hearing on the issue. The DOJ in a response this week said it didn’t object to holding the hearing.
