Justice Department Investigates Albuquerque Police Department for Use of Excessive Force

The Justice Department is launching an investigation of the Albuquerque Police Department following more than two dozen shootings, the New York Times reports.

The probe is to determine whether police used excessive force, including unreasonable deadly force, against suspects.

“We will peel the onion to its core, and we will leave no stone unturned,” Thomas E. Perez, the assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, said at a news conference in Albuquerque.

“We will talk to department leadership and rank-and-file officers,” Mr. Perez said. “We will also actively engage with the community, a critical part of the process of determining whether systemic violations exist.”

In the past two years, the police department has been involved in 25 shootings, 17 of which were fatal, the New York Times reported.

The frequency of the shootings has alarmed authorities.
