Two Albuquerque city councilors are trying to bring “accountability and transparency” to the Police Oversight Commission by creating a task force that will make recommendations for improving the POC.
The Police Oversight Task Force will evaluate the POC and make a report by the end of this year, according to a news release from councilors Brad Winter and Rey Garduno. No changes will be made to the POC until December, the councilors said.
In compiling that report, the task force will host at least three public forums through March.
The POC has come under scrutiny recently after some community members were not allowed to finish their public comments at a recent meeting, drawing criticism from open government advocates and members of the public.
