Mayoral Candidates At The Police Oversight Board

Mayoral Candidates At The Police Oversight Board

The strongest comment came from Brian Colón who said he thought the Civilian Police Oversight Agency needed subpoena.

Five mayoral candidates appeared before the Police Oversight Board on Thursday night to talk about their views and positions on two subjects: civilian police oversight and the ongoing Albuquerque Police Department reform efforts.

My personal view is that the candidates wasted a great opportunity. TV cameras were there and so were reporters from other media outlets. It was an opportunity for the candidates to really stake out their territory and blow their opponents away.

But as usual, most of them didn’t say much. The strongest comment came from Brian Colón who said he thought the Civilian Police Oversight Agency needed subpoena power.

Susan Wheeler-Deichsel showed her lack of understanding of the Civilian Police Oversight Agency and the POB by saying, “I will order the CPOA to stay intact for the foreseeable future.”

The CPOA and the POB were created by an ordinance passed by the city council, the legislative branch of city government. The CPOA won’t go away unless the council rescinds the ordinance or changes it. A mayor has nothing to do with it.

But don’t take my word for all of this. Below is the video of all five of the candidates giving their talks to the POB, recorded by freelance journalist Charles Arasim.

I hope you watch.
