Albuquerque city council has approved spending $220,000 for work that's already been done to help reform APD.
The measure passed with a 6 to 3 vote in Monday night's city council meeting.
Thirteen years ago, when police shootings ignited race riots in Cincinnati, Scott Greenwood, an ACLU lawyer suing the city for police brutality, and Tom Streicher, the police chief, worked together to change Cincinnati police. The two have been working in Albuquerque since mid-April.
The $220,000 will cover the work that's been done and work the team does until the end of June. It would come from the city's risk management fund.
