US Justice Department says it is investigating Albuquerque police over abuse allegations

The U.S. Justice Department says it is launching an investigation into the Albuquerque Police Department after a string of officer-involved shootings and a number of high-profile abuse cases.

A press conference has been scheduled Tuesday to announce the details of the pending probe following a visit by federal officials to New Mexico's largest city more than a year ago.

The Albuquerque Police Department has been under fire from civil rights advocates in recent months. The department has had 25 officer-involved shootings since 2010 — 17 of them fatal. The department also has been criticized over a number of cases alleging abuse by officers.

Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Thomas Perez and U.S. Attorney for New Mexico Kenneth Gonzales are scheduled to give details of the investigation.
