ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The training director at the Albuquerque Police Department Academy is stepping down.

Police officials announced Friday that Joe Wolf has submitted his notice of resignation to pursue other opportunities.

Wolf was appointed to the training director position in July 2012.

He previously held the job as chief at the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Training Academy in Georgia.

Albuquerque police say Wolf’s resignation won’t affect their timeline for all of the training requirements put forth in the Department of Justice’s settlement agreement.

The city and the Justice Department recently signed an agreement to overhaul Albuquerque’s troubled police department.

The deal calls for new training and protocols for investigating officer-involved shootings.
