Albuquerque Doj Settlement Agreement

A mistaken belief is that the Federal Court of Justice has taken over APD and that the federal monitor has the management and control of ODA that is not close to the truth off. No “special master” appointed by the court, which took over the head of the ODA or its management. After the agreement, the Federal Court of Justice has no direction, authority or control over APD, its employees and is not in the “chain of command.” The federal monitor has not been authorized to issue orders to ODA employees and is not empowered to discipline ODA staff. Under CASA, the federal monitor`s primary responsibility is to collect statistical data, review ODA results and report to the Federal Court on the progress made by ODA in implementing the prescribed reforms. Mr. Ginger`s reports show compliance with dozens of sections of the agreement, including those relating to the training and operation of tactical units, the provision of substantive crisis response training for foreign service personnel, and the implementation of a strategic recruitment plan to attract qualified candidates from “a large part of the Community”. 13. As part of CASA, the city agreed to eliminate the Repeat Offenders project, known as the ROP, within three months of the signing of the agreement, due to the participation of members of the unit in a series of controversial shootings reviewed by the DOJ. He called the city`s request “not positive” that will help ODA morale and allow it to focus more resources on the aspects of the DOJ agreement that it still needs to work on. 8. CASA provides for the appointment of a federal justice monitor, chosen in agreement with the city to fund the federal monitor`s examination services.

The main tasks and tasks of the federal monitor are to report directly to the federal judge on compliance with mandatory ODA reforms. The 106-party negotiated CASA agreement was tabled on November 10, 2014. The mayor of Albuquerque says the city will ask a federal judge to release him from part of a five-year agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, citing his significant progress in police reform. www.cabq.gov/mental-health-response-advisory-committee/documents/court-approved-settlement-agreement-final.pdf Read the documents published on October 31, 2014, on the agreement of the Ministry of Justice with the Albuquerque Police Department.
