Police association vote in interim president

Today, March 29, 2012, the executive board of the Albuquerque Police Officers Association unanimously voted in an interim president and vice president. Sergeant Greg Weber will be serving as president of the APOA and Sergeant Tom Henderson will be serving as vice-president. Sergeant Henderson currently serves the Foothills area command station.

According to the press release received from Northeast command representative, Mark Aragon, no other business was discussed at today's meeting. The union will hold another meeting on April 5, 2012 to discuss "other issues among the entire membership".

Mayor Barry, Chief Schultz and citizen activist groups have criticized the union after is was discovered that police officers involved in fatal shootings were given payments in order to decompress. It has not been determined whether or not the payments are part of the current union contract with the City of Albuquerque which may classify them as hazard pay. The Burque Blotter has sent a email requesting additional information regarding these issues to Mr. Aragon and is awaiting a response.
