ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The Albuquerque Police Department says it’s making changes to better track its ammunition.

The changes were prompted by a recent audit that found the department was unaware of how much ammunition it had and didn’t have policies and procedures for how it tracks and stores ammo.

Police spokeswoman Celina Espinoza tells the Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/1H3RPWj) that the department has assigned someone at its training academy to order and track ammunition for the city’s different area commands.

Those area commands in turn will keep better records of their ammunition.

The police force is implementing a number of policy changes and reforms as part of a settlement between the city and the U.S. Department of Justice. That agreement follows a harsh report that faulted police over allegations of excessive force.
