Police Use of Lethal Force

Thurs. 6/23 at 8am: This week on the KUNM Call In Show, Albuquerque Police Chief Ray Schultz will answer your questions about APD's use of deadly force.

This week on the KUNM call-in show join us for a discussion on police shootings and the use of deadly force. Every day police officers face challenges that may cause them to use deadly force. In Albuquerque there have been 18 police shootings since January 2010, resulting in 13 deaths. Is that unusually high for a city like ours? How do features of our communities affect the actions of patrol officers. Albuquerque Police Chief Ray Schultz joins us in the studio to answer these and other questions.

Guests include:
Chief Ray Schultz, Albuquerque Police Department
Matthew Coyte, Criminal Defense & Civil Rights Attorney
Jeffery Nowacki, author of the article "Organizational Level Police Discretion: An Application for Police Use of Lethal Force"

Hosted by Arcie Chapa
