Albuquerque police face sweeping reforms after excessive force allegations

The beleaguered Albuquerque Police Department in New Mexico has reached a deal with the Department of Justice to overhaul many of its practices. The reforms come amid protests fueled by the department fatally shooting nearly 30 people in four years.

Sweeping in scope, the reforms involve new training and recruitment procedures and field supervision of officers, and will require the department to employ body cameras on its officers.
