Improving The Relationship Between Citizens And Police

U.S. Department of Justice

Fri. 6/26 8a: Peace Talks Radio asked a number of different stakeholders for their ideas about improving the relationship between citizens and their law enforcement officers – a relationship that has certainly been strained in
some U.S. communities (including Albuquerque) in recent years. Current and former police officers (several from New Mexico), city councilors, community leaders, police trainers, and criminologists all suggest ways to bring more peace around the sometimes frayed connection between citizens and police.  Jim Ginger is also featured.  He's the court-appointed monitor overseeing Albuquerque Police Department’s compliance with a DOJ settlement agreement that aims to curb a pattern of excessive force by the Albuquerque Police Department.
