ALBUQUERQUE — New proposed state police training material that critics say gives officers more leeway to use deadly force will be released to the public next week, New Mexico Police Chief Pete Kassetas said Wednesday.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Kassetas said drafts of the New Mexico Law Enforcement Academy curriculum will be made available as soon as officials get them ready. The creator of the curriculum originally said he’d rather burn the materials than release them.
