In a report, Dr. James Ginger said big accomplishments over the past year include the hiring of a police academy commander from outside the department.

He also credits APD for a stronger push toward a community policing.

Ginger writes, "Given the scope and nature of issues confronted by APD at this time last year, these results are exceptional."

Ginger noted that APD is in operation compliance with 59 percent of requirements in the settlement agreement with the Department of Justice.

That's a 12 percent increase from last year.
