In November 2012, the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of New Mexico opened a civil investigation to determine whether the Albuquerque Police Department engages in a pattern or practice of use of excessive force, including use of unreasonable deadly force, in violation of the Constitution and federal law. The results of the investigation will be announced at a press conference to be held at 10:00 a.m. MDT, on Thursday, April 10, 2014, at the Albuquerque office of the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Mexico.
