Two Albuquerque police officers have been placed on administrative leave as the department looks into their social media posts.
Gilbert Gallegos, an Albuquerque Police Department spokesman, said APD is investigating whether the officers violated the department’s social media policy. Gallegos did not respond to further questions on what the posts were about or when they were made.
He said, in general, the Albuquerque Police Department’s social media policy is intended to “protect the department from content or speech that would impair its efficiency or damage the reputation and trust the Department has or is building with the community.”
