Albuquerque residents had an opportunity to meet with representatives of the Department of Justice Monday night in one of two meetings scheduled for this week.

Representatives from the DOJ stated they are interested in any documented proof that shows an Albuquerque Police Officer may have used excessive force on the job.

The first meeting was held at the Cesar Chavez Community Center and drew in a standing room only crowd. While the lines were long to talk to representatives, many said it was worth the wait for someone to hear their story.

The next meeting is Wednesday at the Alamosa Community Center. Those who cannot make the meetings can file concerns by calling 1-855-544-5134 or email community.albuquerque@usdoj.gov.
