The Albuquerque Journal on Tuesday reported that the Albuquerque Police Department released its annual Use of Force Report for 2016 and 2017.

The report shows Albuquerque officers were dispatched to about 450,000 calls for service in 2016 and 480,330 in 2017. Use-of-force cases represented fewer than one-tenth of 1 percent of those calls.

The report, which is compiled by the department's compliance bureau and the force division of internal affairs, is mandatory under a 2014 settlement agreement signed by the Department of Justice and the city in the wake of an investigation that found Albuquerque police had a pattern of using excessive force.
