ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police reform advocates say they're concerned state police patrolling Albuquerque are not being held to the same use-of-force and training standards as Albuquerque police.

The group APD Forward, which includes the American Civil Liberties Union, issued its statement Friday, following two shootings a day earlier by state police. The shootings happened within an hour of each other.

APD Forward noted the shootings came less than a week after Mayor Tim Keller outlined a coordinated public-safety push in the city across agencies amid a crime wave. Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham assigned 50 state police to bolster law enforcement's presence in Albuquerque.

APD Forward called for the mayor and governor to ensure state police follow the same protocols as Albuquerque police.

Albuquerque police in recent years have undergone an overhaul of their policies as a result of a federal settlement agreement.
