ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — A federal judge is inviting Albuquerque groups to submit friend-of-the-court briefs for a pending settlement between the city and the U.S. Justice Department to overhaul Albuquerque police.

U.S. District Judge Robert Brack issued Wednesday his ruling to give the public a chance to submit up to 15 pages.

The ruling will allow briefs to argue positions so the court can craft a final agreement.

The reform blueprint calls for new training and protocols for investigating officer shootings. It also calls for the agency to dismantle some troubled units.

A federal monitor will be chosen to keep tabs on whether the department is following the agreement.
