body

DATE: April 1, 2021


Pursuant to the provisions of ?9-4-1-5 of the Police Oversight Ordinance, City Council staff recommends the appointment of Mr. Richard Johnson to the Civilian Police Oversight Agency Board.

APPOINTEE NAME TERM
Richard Johnson February 2, 2024
10651 Summercrest Drive NW
Albuquerque, New Mexico 87114

If appointed, Mr. Johnson will be filling a vacancy and serving his first full term which will expire on February 2, 2024, and he will be eligible for re-appointment for another three-year term.
Mr. Johnson is currently employed as the Pastor and Co-Founder of The Living Water Miracle Center. As an active community leader, Mr. Johnson has worked through his ministry helping to feed the food insecure residents of Albuquerque. Mr. Johnson has also helped people with their drug addictions by providing counseling and help with other issues in the hope of breaking the cycle of addiction. Mr. Johnson spends time during the day of his working hours in contact with people who are at higher risk of experiencing interactions with law enforcement. Mr. Johnson's interest in serving on the CPOA Board comes from the fact that he feels that he can bring a different perspective to the Board because of his close ties to the community and help bridge the gap between the community and law enforcement.
