ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The court-appointed monitor tasked with tracking mandated reforms within the Albuquerque Police Department is expected to present his third report before a federal judge Thursday.

The report covers reform efforts within the department between December and March.

It was released earlier this month, with court monitor James Ginger’s team saying some police supervisors didn’t adequately investigate use-of-force cases. He blamed the department’s review system for failing to hold officers accountable.

Jessica Hernandez, the Albuquerque city attorney, says that since March, all APD supervisors have been trained on a new policy for conducting use-of-force investigations, and the department is committed to reform.

Albuquerque police are under court order to enact changes after a U.S. Justice Department investigation found a culture of excessive force among police. The monthslong investigation ended in 2014.
