KOB Eyewitness News 4 has confirmed that Albuquerque's police chief is reviewing a common practice in the department that not everyone is happy about.
 
APD Spokeswoman Janet Blair says Chief Gordon Eden is looking at making changes to how much time passes before they interview officers involved in shootings.
   
Currently, APD Union President Stephanie Lopez says officers get about 48 hours to decompress and rest before they're interviewed.
    
But critics say officers need to be questioned quickly after the incident.  Blair says there is no solid proposal for a policy, but one can be expected "sooner rather than later."
