ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — The Albuquerque Police Department has launched an advertising blitz aimed at getting residents to interact directly with officers.

KRQE-TV in Albuquerque reports (http://goo.gl/IaSDH7) the department is running a radio advertisement that directs people to the website, talkwithacop.com, where people can ask officers questions.

The website is part of the department's efforts to build a better relationship with the community while complying with a recent Department of Justice agreement.

Last year, a report from the department found that Albuquerque police have a pattern of excessive force.

Albuquerque police also had been under scrutiny for more than 40 police shootings since 2010.

The city spent $75,000 from the mayor's appropriation budget for the ads, which will continue to run on the radio.
